Check handwritten in ink on oblong slip of paper
Earliest known example of a check honored after an initialled change [Folger V.b.433 v.140 no.32]

The Papers of Robert Clayton, John Morris, et al. relating to English banking, Folger manuscript V.b.377, v.1-145, are a portion of a larger collection of private banking papers from the 17th century that has been dispersed over the past two hundred years. This collection was most recently held by the Fairfax family, who acquired it from G. Michelmore (bookseller), who purchased it at auction (Sotheby’s, March 26, 1929).

Please see the finding aid for further information. Note, however, that numbering in the finding aid does not necessarily correspond with the order of items in a bound volume. See the concordance after the list of volumes, below, for a work-in-progress key that matches the order of items within volumes to the numbering in the finding aid.

The collection is currently being processed: 141 of the 145 volumes are currently available (see List of volumes, below). Processing notes: catalog listing from 1 through 870 generally coincides with volume-number order and binding order within volumes. When numbering sequence differs (and eventually, for all numbers) the through-number from the catalog is penciled in the upper-right corner of the document. Method for numbering: make photocopy of relevant catalog pages. Cut pages almost into strips: leave a margin so they'll stay in numeric order until the strip is torn off to make a slip. Use slips as temporary bookmarks in the volume (being careful to spread them out across the volume to avoid straining the binding). Once all slips from a section are accounted for, add item number to catalog and through-number to item.

Concordance

Numbering in the finding aid does not necessarily correspond with the order of items in a bound volume. This sortable list (in progress) matches the order of items within volumes to the numbering in the finding aid.

To sort on multiple columns: make your first sort, then hold the Shift key when making subsequent sorts. Note that the underlying data remains in numeric order by volume, then item within volume. It's just the view in your specific browser session that changes.
