Now that Wallace Letters Online has offically launched and in this celebratory year of all things Wallace, I will be selecting a letter from each month of the year from the catalogue and blogging about it (there may be more than one if I just can't choose between letters one month!).
The blogs will be posted on the Natural History Museum's Wallace100 blog and you can read January's selection here;

Some exciting news here at the WCP to share with you all; I've recently found 105 letters written to Alfred Russel Wallace, that we weren't originally aware of! It came about, as most discoveries do really, with a little bit of luck.
Recently I needed to watermark hundreds of image files but found that batch processing them using my version of Adobe PhotoShop was rather complex.... After a lot of searching on the Internet I discovered FastStone Image Viewer, which I can highly recommend. It also does lots of other useful things - e.g. it can resize images in batches, and amazingly it is entirely free (but donations are welcome)!
I have updated the WCP's transcription protocol - please download the new version (v. 15) by CLICKING HERE. If you would like to see how it differs from version 14 then please see the following Word document which shows the changes - http://wallaceletters.info/content/comparison-between-version-14-15-wcps...
