Banking-related papers of Robert Clayton, John Morris, et al., from the Fairfax Library, circa 1650-1700
The Papers of Robert Clayton, John Morris, et al. relating to English banking at the Folger are a portion of a larger collection of private banking papers from the 17th century, which 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).
