Description

Excerpt from Illustrated Catalogue of New Jersey Memorabilia and Rare and Valuable Books and Documents: Comprising the Extensive Library of the Late William Nelson of New Jersey It might well be that these documents were used merely as wrappers for the better preservation of papers to which the endorsements have refer ence. But even if so, the indication is, as intimated by Mr. N elson in his Early will-making in New Jersey, that the majority of these old papers had been most carelessly filed. That little or no appreciation was had at the time of the importance of such papers used in the manner described, is indicated by the fact that sev eral of these wrappers were specimens of the work of William Bradford, New York City's first printer, as well as valuable autograph letters of the early New Jersey Proprietors, and others. A list of some of the most important items in the collection is given on the pages immediately following.
