Scope and content

This series includes deeds and leases relating to the Royal Polytechnic Institution properties. In some cases it is unclear what the direct link with the RPI is, but it is thought that some of the deeds relate to properties later acquired or used by The Polytechnic. For the sake of consistency of dates these deeds have been kept as part of the RPI series. Additionally, later appendages relating to Quintin Hogg have also been kept with the original deed within the RPI series.
