Major Works, 1350-1961

Scope and content:

Background notes, transcriptions of original source material, photostats of Spanish archival material (especially that related to treasure imports), and worksheets for compiling prices and salaries in Spain from 1351 to 1800, all related to Hamilton's research for his major published works. Also, a large number of photostats of materials from the Archivo del Banco de España and the Archivo Histórico Nacional concerning the Bank of Spain, as well as notes and source transcriptions of Hamilton's work on this subject. This series contains many photocopies and microfilm copies of items which belong to other libraries and archives. Photocopies of materials gathered from other repositories by Earl J. Hamilton may require permission of the owner institution to further reproduce or publish. Users making further copies for their own research do so at their own discretion. Before publication of any such material, it is the user's responsibility to identify the original source and obtain permission.

Divided into subseries for each major work; papers within are arranged in Hamilton's original order with original folder titles given.

Note: Dates given below in the descriptions for primary source materials reflect the dates of the original items, not the more modern dates on which the photostats or transcriptions were created.
