13Title:  Thompson Westcott scrapbooks of Charles Durang's history of Philadelphia theater between the years 1749 and 1855, 1868   
 Creator:  Durang, Charles. | Westcott, Thompson. 
 Notes:  Processing Information: Formerly Dewey 812 P54D. Durang's history of Philadelphia theater was published in the Sunday dispatch in three series, each bearing a different title: The Philadelphia stage: from 1749 to 1821 (first series, 75 installments published from May 7, 1854 to October 7, 1855); The Philadelphia stage from 1749 to 1855 (second series, 56 installments published from June 29, 1856 to August 2, 1857); and The Philadelphia stage from the year 1749 to the year 1855 (third series, 136 installments published from July 8, 1860 to April 19, 1863). The three series were distributed by Westcott among the six volumes so that each volume contains a similar number of pages. Volume I covers the years from 1749 to 1817-18; volume II from 1817-18 to 1826-27; volume III from 1826-27 to 1831-32; volume IV from 1831-32 to 1841-42; volume V from 1841-42 to 1849-50; and volume VI from 1849-50 to 1855. All the scrapbooks include page numbers, a handwritten index, and a list of portraits. Westcott inserted portraits and other images, as well as personal correspondence, playbills, and additional clippings relating to Durang's chapters, resulting in a remarkably thorough representation of the history of Philadelphia's theater history. The chronological order in which Durang presents the historical events, combined with the author's limited use of narrative flashbacks and flash-forwards, makes the indexes useful to locate any mention or image of a given figure or institution active or relevant in a specific period of time. Please see the container list for more detailed information on each volume.

Much of the correspondence is made up of letters from various members of the Bacon family who were opposed to the marriage.

Family papers include legal and financial materials, maps and floor plans, and printed items. The autograph collection includes letters and documents signed by U. S. Presidents, military officials, cabinet officers, governors, authors, college presidents, and other prominent nineteenth century figures.
