This collection follows immediately after the Hanoverian State Papers Domestic, 1714-1782 (also held by the Microform Reading Room). It documents various levels of British social and political life, covering a long period of war with revolutionary France, and various domestic eruptions, including Luddite actions, food riots, labor disturbances, and the assassination of Prime Minister Spencer Perceval (in 1812).

The arrangement of the documents is chronological. Access is provided by the overall Public Record Office box guide for HO 42, located at the beginning of each part, and followed in each case by a reel guide produced by the microform publisher. The first box in each part can be requested if the reel guide is needed for that part.
