The archives of financial institutions, however, should also be remembered. A recent article by Emma Jacobs (“A three centuries paper trail at Coutts”, Financial Times, 30 October 2015) describes some of the contents of the archives of Coutts Bank in London, including important groups of papers of writers such as Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens, and, more surprisingly, Voltaire.
