Autograph album, 1667-1823.

Manuscript, in multiple hands, with some annotations in a later hand, of several hundred signatures of members of Parliament and other persons in serving in government offices, pasted, tipped, and laid in. Many of the signatures appear at the bottom of bills, receipts, legal documents, and business letters; most of the entries preserve only fragments of the documents on which the signatures originally appeared. Many documents are receipts for orders of money for use for the Navy from the Treasurer of the Ordnance, or other orders regarding public monies. Although the volume includes signatures from the 17th century, most of the signatures are dated in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The collection includes the signatures of Robert Walpole; George Lyttelton; Francis Conyngham; George Grenville; Henry Edward Bunbury; Thomas Pelham; Henry Fox; Sidney Herbert; Horatio Walpole; Horace Walpole; and William Stanhope. The volume also includes several dozen examples of government seals, pasted in and labeled.
