Rensselaerwyck Manor Papers

Selected Bibliography

These books provide background information on the Rensselaerwyck Manor or translations and/or transcriptions of materials in the collection that may not be used because they were burned in the Capitol fire of 1911 and are, therefore, in very fragile condition.
