At present, the Digital Collection features 41 artworks, four books, 17 broadsides, 236 manuscripts, 27 newspaper and periodical issues, 71 pamphlets, and nine political cartoons. About half of the corpus is fully-transcribed, with new transcriptions being added on a regular basis. The manuscripts path includes sub-paths with which readers may filter for correspondence and diaries related to Conestoga Manor, Moravian missionariesFriendly AssociationTimothy HorsfieldEdward Shippen, and the Walking Purchase. Likewise, pamphlets includes a sub-path highlighting items for which we have digitized more than one edition (Multiple Editions).
