Business correspondence, accounts, statements, receipts, vouchers, deeds, transcripts of transactions, and notes, mainly written or collected by the personal or family treasurers of the Comte d'Artois (including his reign as King Charles X) and of his grandson, the count of Chambord and duke of Bordeaux. The collection documents the management of the Comte d'Artois's personal and household finances from 1773 until his permanent exile following the July Revolution of 1830, with documents concerning some family estates extending back to 1535. It also documents the management of the Comte de Chambord's personal and household finances through 1855. Most items are from the pre-Revolutionary period (1773-1789), the Restoration (1814-1830), or items concerning the Comte de Chambord (from 1828-1855), including expenses for his education and begging letters
received by him or his tutors. Materials from Restoration period include a complete set of annual accounts of the Comte d'Artois's household from 1815-1830.
