These volumes mainly contain Coleridge's contributions to the newspapers. The essays provide Coleridge's views on a wide variety of topics, including the slave trade, Napoleon, and the whipping of female criminals. At the rear of the third volume are some poetry and rejected articles. The binder is probably Robert Nelson of Glasgow. The former owner is likely Thomas Adam Mathieson (1823–99), son of Alexander Mathieson, the founder of Saracen Toolworks in the East End of Glasgow. Thomas entered politics, served on several boards, and was a benefactor of schools.
