Sir Edward Carson's Scrapbook

This collection comprises Sir Edward Carson's personal scrapbook of Ulster Day 1912, including Carson's own copy of the Ulster Covenant. There are many press cuttings, including contemporary cartoons, in addition to posters advertising anti-Home Rule rallies, and a large number of telegrams from Carson's supporters. One unusual item is a "poison-pen" postcard, full of threats and abuse, but signed "Yours sincerely, Liza Jane".
