My Commonplace Book

Commonplace books were a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. Such books were essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: medical recipes, quotes, letters, prayers, legal formulas etc. Commonplaces were used by readers, writers, students, and scholars as an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts they had learned.
