Administrative / biographical history:
The collection was formerly housed in the Department of Economic & Social History but was transferred to the Main Library in 1987, since when further material has been added. It includes a number of scarce pamphlets, and includes for the most part documents produced by the British Union of Fascists before 1940, as well as more overtly anti-Semitic material produced by organisations such as the Sons of Liberty and the Imperial Fascist League.
