Abstract:

This collection features original legal documents, marriage certificates, birth certificates, bills, and letters from Philadelphia, PA, England, and France. Many relate to Joseph Donath, a Philadelphia merchant and his son, James A. Donath, a Philadelphia lawyer.

Also included are research materials collected by Mr. Maurice Brix, Philadelphia silver collector and scholar, for his book and other writings on Philadelphia silversmiths. The correspondence of Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Brix documents their association with other American silver collectors from 1906 to 1940. Alfred Coxe Prime, Robert Ensko, Hollis French, David Belasco, and Herbert DuPuy were among the more frequent correspondents.

Numerous periodical clippings, photographs, and research notes pertain to early American silver objects and their makers. Photostats representing original manuscripts (1743-1804) document the work of silversmiths. Magazine articles on silver and pewter clipped from The Antiquarian and Antiques Magazine are also included.
