The Pike Papers were donated in two instalments by Pike's widow in 1977 and 1984.
The second instalment of the Pike Papers was received in a disordered state. The files named 'Bibliographic files' and 'Academic and historical files' and the referees reports formed discrete groupings. Other arrangements have been imposed by Manuscripts staff. The contents of most files have been retained in their original order.
