Catalogue for an auction held at Sotheby's on December 14, 1989 which offered for sale sixty-three lots comprising as much as a hundred thousand pages of correspondence, tracts, memoranda and related documents from the archives of the Trumbull and Weckherlin families. Spanning a period from the 1540's to the 1770's, this was the largest and most important collection of State Papers of the period ever to be offered for sale at auction. Entries for each of the items include a detailed citation and a description that places the papers in their historical context. Illustrations throughout, many full-page.
