Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Use the internal index at the front of the volume to identify an order of interest. The index records the subject of the order and the page number within the volume that contains it.

  • Function / Content
    This volume which contains orders issued by the Government Printer to his staff. Individual orders relate largely to aspects of printing procedures or staff issues. There is usually one order per page. Many orders contain signatures or initials presumably of the staff or managers to whom the orders applied.

    Very few entries were made in the last 20 years of the volume (1905 - 1925). More than half of the volume was not used suggesting that no further volumes were created.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Orders are arranged in chronological order by date of issue. Orders to May 1904 were numbered sequentially in a sequence from 1 - 92. Remaining orders were unnumbered. The volume contains an internal index which refers users to the page containing the order.
