7.6: Credit Notes and Memoranda, 1925-1978

This interesting subseries of financial records provides additional details concerning numerous sales and financial transactions of Jacques Seligmann & Co., in the form of correspondence, notes, and memoranda to clients. Although not all the firm's sales are represented in these files, some very important sales and provenance information are documented in these credit notes. Scattered throughout are also routine notes and correspondence concerning financial transactions other than the sale of artwork, particularly in the bound volumes arranged in the subseries. The bound letterpress volumes were originally filed with Correspondence (Series 1) but were refiled in this subseries because of the similar nature of the documents. Scattered throughout the bound volumes, however, are a few notes and letters that are slightly different in nature. The first bound volume is labeled "Mr. Germain's Private Book" but contains the same type of information as found in the credit notes. The name of the series is based upon the terminology used by Jacques Seligmann & Co. and can be defined as credits back to the firm's various accounts. Many of the notes also detail a "debit" on the same document.
The files are divided into loose and bound and, within, are in chronological order. The bulk of this series has been scanned with the exception of bound credit notes which have not been scanned due to the condition of the material.
