All the notebooks have on their front covers Mann's labels which describe and date the work and these labels are reproduced in the catalogue entries. Additionally the notebooks were numbered 1 - 12 in red ink by Professor Mann before making them available for cataloguing. A further characteristic is the inscription, usually on the first page, 'szczesé Boze!' (God Bless) indicative of Mann's Polish origins and Catholic faith. The research recorded in these notebooks was carried out in Cambridge at the Molteno Institute and on visits to the USA. However, they do not form a complete period 1947-76. available. We are very grateful to Professor Mann for making his material set of the notebooks used by Mann for his research even for the Bath 1991 Peter Harper Timothy E Powell T RR Mann NCUACS 30/6/91 LOCATIONS OF OTHER MATERIAL Cambridge University Library has a complete set of Professor Mann's published papers 1930-84 and copies of his four books The Biochemistry of Semen, 1954; The Biochemistry of Semen and of the Male Reproductive Tract, 1964; (with C Lutwak-Mann) Male Reproductive Function and Semen - Themes and Trends in Physiology, Biochemistry and Investigative Andrology, 1981; Spermatophores - Development, Structure, Biochemical Attributes and Role in the Transfer of Spermatozoa, 1984.
