Another Book

Passed over lots of “old books” and “small books” and quite a few “parcel of books” but James Beall of Prince George’s County [inventoried in March of 1733/4] had a “Book of Arithmetick.”  His inventory also lists some of the usual suspects:

  • Large Bible
  • old Book
  • 3 Small Bibles
  • 11 Small Bookes

[I had a third post today, called “Indexing Inventories” but I can’t for the life of me figure out why it does not show up as the next blog moving forward from this one . . . I can see it when I go to it directly from the publishing page, but cannot find it from the site’s home page . . . this is all very mysterious.]
