The collection of seven items is in fair condition, lightly-aged and with slight rust staining to a few pages. The material is from the archives of an Anglo-German firm of City of London stockbrokers (see the list of clients in Item One below, all with German names), and is valuable for the material it contains revealing the impact of the First World War on the firm's own business (see Item Two below, regarding the 'Enemy [i.e. German] Stocks' held by one of its clients) and on the world economy, in the short term (the period immediately following the War), on the eve of the Great Crash, and in the early years of the Depression.

The first entry reads: '5% Cuban Port Bonds 1914. $3,000. - were dealt at 90 ¼. in New York on the [blank] Referring to this sale to write to J. S. Bache & Co., New York.'

The last entry - 'Hahns Enke wrote on 29/11/18 about information of Svenska Diskontokassan, Stockholm. To reply by telegram.' - has been deleted, and replaced by the following, in pencil: 'Answered small instruction Kns 500,000'.
