Various documents from German speaking lands without any Jewish contents had been originally assembled by the LBI in the “Non-Jewish Collection”. At some later point, this collection was divided into “Materials pertaining to social, political and economic history” with the call number AR 3519, and the “Autographs collection”, AR 348.
Newspapers issues of "Frankfurter Kaiserl. Reichs-Ober-Post-Amts-Zeitung", 1788; and "Staats- und Gelehrte Zeitung des hamburgischen unpartheyischen Correspondenten", 1821, originally holding the common call number AR 3589 were removed to the LBI Library.
This collection contains mostly printed documents pertaining to the social, political and economic history in Danzig, Bavaria, Alsace and Westphalia.
The materials have been arranged by the collection’s geographic provenance.
The original “Non-Jewish Collection” has been divided during processing into the present “Materials pertaining to social, political and economic history” and into the separate “Autographs collection”, AR 348.
