Size: 1 Microfilm reel, 71 items on partial microfilm reel
Summary: This microfilm collection contains writings by African American self-taught artist James Hapton in an unknown script. These writings are sometimes accompanied by notes in English, quotations from the Bible, or the word "Revelation." The writings are on loose leaf paper, in a 108-page notebook entitled "St. James: The Book of the 7 Dispensation," and in seven notebooks with only a few inscribed pages each. Also included in the collection is a Bible once owned by Hampton containing an inscription in the back. Only the Bible's cover and the inscription were microfilmed.
