Manuscripts and Archives from the William Reese Company

The William Reese Company recently issued their 320th catalogue, this latest selection entitled Manuscripts & Archives. They range from U.S. Presidents and other notable leaders to everyday soldiers writing home from the fields of war. In terms of timing, we find a document from a British political and naval leader instrumental in setting up the Plymouth colony, to a large collection of photographs from the Vietnam War. That said, most items come from the 18th or 19th century. The bulk are American in origin, but not exclusively so. Here are a few samples of what Reese is offering.
