Katharine Maltwood Collection

Katharine Emma Maltwood (nee Sapsworth) was an artist and author who held a life-long fascination with ancient history, folklore, mythology, spirituality, and the occult. This collection of digital surrogates represents items from the University of Victoria Libraries’ Katharine Emma Maltwood Fonds. It is of note that many of the seemingly unrelated items in the archive are associated with zodiacal symbolism in some manner.

Thom’s Official Directory

Alexander Thom (1801–1879) was born in Scotland and moved to Dublin at the age of 20. He was the founder of Thom's Irish Almanac, first published in 1844. By time the 1904 edition was published, the publication had grown to include a Dublin street directory, names, addresses, and occupations for residents of other towns and districts in the country, and a variety of institutions, businesses, and departments for Ireland and the United Kingdom.
