This page (named "Downloads" until March 2017) lists all the files available on this web site, including those referred to, and linked from, other pages on this site. Many of the academic and research papers are by members of this association and we publish them with pride, in the memory of Clarence Bicknell whose greatest interest was sharing information rather than hoarding it.

Notes on this Documents page from the web site's editor Marcus Bicknell
An objective of this site and of the Clarence Bicknell Association is to encourage research into Clarence Bicknell and the period by pooling available documents and research activity. Research into Clarence Bicknell is addressed on this site; click here. The download list on Marcus Bicknell’s web site at http://www.marcusbicknell.co.uk/clarence/ was replaced by this page in 2013 and need not be consulted.
The names of Clarence’s visitors in the "Casa Fontanalba Visitors' Book" are transcribed into MS Excel here, along with those listed and illustrated in his “Book of Guests in Esperanto” on the second tab (bottom of the Excel sheet). This list of names was updated 22 March 2013 with people identified in Clarence’s “Flowering Plants and Ferns of the Riviera” and “A Guide to the Prehistoric Rock Engravings in the Italian Maritime Alps”.
Graham Avery, researching into the work of botanist Reginald Farrer, came across his name in Clarence’s visitors’ book. The resulting article is a fascinating cameo of the lives of Farrer and Bicknell when they met at the Casa Fontanalba, and what the undercurrent was when they did so. It can be downloaded here. He has visited the Oxford Herbaria and reported on Clarence's pressed flowers there: "Oxford Herbaria and Clarence Bicknell" can be downloaded here. Among the several papers written by Graham, for which we and scholars thank him, is a piece on Aileen Fox the archaeologist who visited the Casa Fontanalba in 1927 and 1928. She left an interesting account of her experience in her autobiography Aileen – A Pioneering Archaeologist (Gracewing, Leominster UK, 2000). Read Graham's article here
The granddaughter of Elizabeth B. and James Churchman, who signed Clarence’s visitors book on 22nd July 1906, among the first visitors, found their names on this site and contacted us with more information about them. Download a one page pdf here: james_and_elizabeth_churchman_mar2013
I am delighted at these various pieces of research as they justify already, for me, the effort of transcribing the hand-written documents onto the internet.
