  • How to use the Records
    Correspondence in this series is arranged in chronological order. Consult the Records Description List for the unit containing the relevant date range.

  • Function / Content
    One of the key duties of the Government Printing Office was to administer the publication of the Victorian Government Gazette. This included organising submissions of articles, notices and advertisements, and managing subscriptions.

    This series consists of an inwards letter book. The letters were addressed to the Government Printers Office from members of the public, companies and government agencies alike. They regarded matters relating to the publication of the Victorian Government Gazette, including the establishment or alteration of subscription details, and the submission of advertisements, notices, and articles.

    The maintenance of Letters regarding the Government Gazette as a separate series was initiated by the Government Printing Office sometime between 1858 and 1866. Prior to 1858, inwards correspondence relating to all matters, including the Government Gazette, was maintained as a single series.

    For inwards correspondence relating to the publication of the Government Gazette, and all other matters, see VPRS 1159 Inwards Correspondence.
