The archive contains research papers relating to John Talman (1677-1726) the artist, antiquarian and traveller, which were edited posthumously for publication by Graham Parry and Antony Griffiths for the Walpole Society, Vol. LIX, 1997. The papers include a large number of photographs, most of which are annotated, which document Talman's drawings, his art collection and related contemporary manuscripts. There is a transcript, with annotations, of Talman's Letter-Book (1707-1712) and further transcripts of original source material. Additionally there are research notes, notebooks, copies of related articles, and correspondence.
