A collection of documents relating to the career of Peter Frederik Koch (1832-1907), sometime Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Denmark, and his son Svend Koch (1867-1943), an engineer and Member of Parliament

The archive includes: (A) Five documents (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1864, 1871, 1878, 1885 and 1897, with the florid printed introduction: 'Vi Christian den Niende, af Guds Naade Konge til Danmark ...') completed in a secretarial hand and signed 'Christian R' (Christian IX, King of Denmark from 1863 to 1906), with his paper-covered wax seal, confirming Koch's appointment as judge in various Danish courts, with the last marking his investiture as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (Højesteretsjustitiarius). Together with seven letters on Justitsministeriet stationery relating to these appointments, signed by various officials in the Ministry. (B) Five documents issued by the Chancery of Orders (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1880, 1887, 1888, 1892 and 1900), each with the paper-covered wax seal of the Order of the Elephant, investing Koch into various Danish orders, culminating with the Grand Cross of the Dannebrog. Each one is accompanied by a group of documents and correspondence (printed and manuscript), including information on the orders and material for the investiture ceremonies. (C) Koch's certificate of admission to the University of Copenhagen and four academic transcripts relating to his time there. (D) A group of seven documents addressed to Koch (six on Justitsministeriet stationery), apparently relating to his work as a judge. (E) Two documents issued by the Chancery of Orders (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1911 and 1927), each with the paper-covered wax seal of the Order of the Elephant, investing Svend Koch in two levels in the Order of the Dannebrog, together with a group of letters and documents (some duplicates) relating to the investitures. (F) A collection of approximately 35 letters addressed to Svend Koch (mainly typed and signed, dated between 1906 and 1937) relating to his work as an engineer and municipal council member, together with the retained duplicate copies of 17 typed letters sent in reply, initialled by Koch (all dated September 1928). (G) Five further documents, including Svend Koch's certificate of admission to the University of Copenhagen, his will (sealed and dated 1895), two duplicate contracts for engineering work and a document with the paper seal of the City of Copenhagen, signed (apparently) by ten city councillors. Many of the items have been folded for storage or posting, and several have short edge tears and uneven creases, but overall, the collection is in excellent condition.
