About This Item

1794. [Kent, England, April 2, 1794-January 13, 1802]. [Kent, England, April 2, 1794-January 13, 1802]. Day Books of a Solicitor in Kent, England from 1794, 1803 and 1811 [Manuscript]. [Solicitors]. [Great Britain]. Day Book Commencing April 1794. [Kent, England, April 2, 1794-January 13, 1802]. [96] pp. [With] [Day Book]. [Kent, England, January 3, 1803-January 14, 1811]. [96] pp. [And] Day Book Commencing 2nd February 1811. [Kent, England, February 2, 1811-November 11, 1813]. [50] pp. Quarto (9-1/2" x 8"). 1802 and 1813 books: Stab-stitched booklet in wrappers, manuscript titles to front wrapper; 1811 book: disbound stab-stitched booklet. Some soiling to exteriors, moderate rubbing to extremities with some edgewear and minor chips and tears, light browning to interiors, light soiling and minor stains to a few leaves, rectos and versos of all leaves filled with content in legible hand. $1,250. * We believe this manuscript is from Kent because it mentions a number of places there, such as Appledore and Bethersden. Written throughout in a single hand, these books record the daily business of solicitor with a busy practice over a 19-year period. Each entry lists clients, services rendered and fees. Several of these include brief memoranda. Taken together, these books are both a record of a practitioner's professional activities and a window into the social and economic networks of Kent in the years around the turn of the nineteenth century.
