Loan Prospectuses, XIII/230 series, 1858-1916

XIII/230/1-95, 7 boxes

The XIII/230 series consists of examples of prospectuses relating to New Court loans issues from 1858-1916. Very few early prospectuses exist, with the exception of the first loan, the 1818 Prussian loan, where a single prospectus survives in the XIII/206 series. It is not known if prospectuses for early loans before 1858 were issued, or of examples of them simply do not survive.
