Hamilton Books and Story Papers-

The scans are mainly saved in PDF format but I have added EBook formats where available. If there is no hyperlink on the file name then the file is not yet available. Click on the link to open the fi3 les, right click and save to copy the files to your hard drive.

Some of the Magnet scans are available in both PDF and fully searchable MS Word format. If you do not have Microsoft Word installed on your machine you can download free version of Microsoft reader from here.

If you have any Hamilton material that you would like to share then please contact me. It doesn't have to be in electronic format, I can still get good results from scanning photocopies or digital photographs.

Please be aware that many of the story papers featured on this site are over 100 years old and some of the language in common use then may be considered offensive by some readers today.

A number of the story papers featured on this website were scanned by Allan S from the collection of the British Library and are reproduced with their kind permission. British Library Board
