- J. H. Henkes Distillery Archive-Delfshaven, Holland. Mostly 19th century archive of the J. H. Henkes Distillery in Holland. This important Dutch distillery, founded in 1824, probably the most famous on the Voorhaven, thrives today in what is now a Rotterdam suburb. This collection includes billheads, legal papers, single sheet ledgers, bills of lading, cancelled checks, and correspondence. In addition three-quarters of the collection are perhaps 100 printers proofs, plus 4 albums of label samples and at least 50 file cards of various company labels. The oldest label album, not dated, compiles various company labels and private labels used in the export market. J. H. Henkes exported to Nigeria, Liberia, the Gold Coast, French Territories, Lagos, Sierra Leone and the Congo. 29 pages; each leaf has 1-5 labels with typed notes as to where the liquor is exported. Wrappers are soiled and chipped but the interior sheets are fairly clean. Tipped in labels are clean and vibrant. J. H. Henkes blind embossed stamp on front wrapper. With three modern ring binders contain up to 200 unique Henkes labels, one per page with no notes or descriptions. Fine condition. Within the archive of paper, there is a 10 page legal Indenture dated September 20, 1901 for a 1,000 pounds sterling note with a firm in London for the purpose of extending the J. H. Henkes empire into England.
