The work covers their personal papers and other manuscript collections as well as contemporary memoirs, diaries, and correspondence. Relevant books and articles, illustrating all aspects of the brothers' lives and careers, are arranged topically and annotated. The volume also includes information on material, such as microfilmed manuscripts, outside the United Kingdom.
