Colonial State Papers integrates two important research tools as one service:
Collection CO 1 from The National Archives, full name: Privy Council and related bodies: America and West Indies, Colonial Papers
The Calendar of State Papers, Colonial: North America and the West Indies 1574-1739
Bringing them together in this way combines the searchable metadata of the Calendar with the full-colour digital reproductions of the original CO 1 documents. All of the documents from CO 1, including a number of contemporary hand-drawn maps, have been reproduced as full-colour, high quality images digitised directly from the original documents. Users can search the database and will be able to limit their view to just those records with images from CO 1 or expand it to include all documents recorded in the Calendar.
