  • In William Beekman’s day, Commonplace Books were... commonplace. Such books were essentially hand-bound scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas. Commonplaces are used by readers, writers, students, and scholars as an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts they have learned. Each commonplace book is unique to its creator's particular interests. They became significant in Early Modern Europe. By the early eighteenth century they had become an information management device in which a note-taker stored quotations, observations and definitions—any tidbit or fact that might somehow inspire them in the future.
