Autograph case of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia

 Collection
Identifier: CPP-AUTO

Scope and Contents

Autograph collections were popular during the 19th century. Individual collectors and libraries sought autographs, manuscripts, letters, and signatures of well-known people. The Historical Medical Library maintains its own collection of autographs, likely compiled by previous librarians. The collection consists mainly of correspondence; however, a good number are facsimiles of the original held at other institutions.
