Administrative/Biographical history:

Fuller was born in 1882 and went on to study to be a solicitor before World War One. Joining the army, he rose to the rank of captain before leaving due to ill health and loss of hearing which prevented him from returning to his legal career. Fuller was interested in collecting Pacific and African artefacts and went on to become honorary curator in the Ethnological Department of the British Museum. He was also an avid antiquarian. He died in 1961.


Scope and content/abstract:

Documents, mostly British but including Spanish, French, Italian, Imperial and Papal documents, of 13th-20th centuries, acquired chiefly for their seals. There are some detached seals, proofs and casts.
