Digital collection of British government documents, mostly from the Foreign Office, but also from the Colonial Office, the Dominions Office, and the War Office. “Confidential Prints” were diplomatic dispatches and related documents deemed sufficiently important to be printed and then circulated among government officials. The prints were grouped into series by geographical region, and then numbered consecutively, but after being transferred to the Public Records Office, the prints were organized according to the National Archives’ system of provenance.
