New Arrival: A Rare 18th-Century Boston Court Docket

Boston 18th Century Court Docket: Boston Court by Adjournment to 3 Dec. 1788. A rare survival of an 18th century Boston court docket. A number of cases are listed in this 11-page manuscript, as well as notes about them, possibly written by a judge or justice of the peace. We got this at the Boston Antiquarian Book Fair, a terrific place to view rare books, manuscripts, and art - and to meet and mingle with like-minded people.
