The Eastern World: A Weekly Journal for Law, Commerce, Politics, Literature and Useful Information, 1899-1908
Our microfilm publications have been prepared and produced in accordance with recommended and established guide-lines for the production of microform of superior quality. These conform to the recommendations of the standard guides to good microforming and micropublishing practice.
Attention should be drawn to the nature of the original material. A few manuscript documents consist of faintly legible correspondence and records written with a variety of inks and pens and on paper which has become severely discoloured or stained, or which is so thin that there is show through that renders the original document difficult to read. Occasionally volumes have been tightly bound and documents are obscured in the inner margin. These original characteristics present difficulties of image and contrast which stringent tests and camera alterations cannot entirely overcome. Every effort has been made to minimise these difficulties. The Public Record Office have exercised the most responsible care in the filming of this unique collection and this microfilm publication meets the standards established by the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
