Commonplace books were a central resource or depository for ideas, quotes, anecdotes, observations and information come across during a person's life and pursuits. Such books were essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind. Each commonplace book was unique to its creator's particular interests. In the 19th century, ladies used them to record quotes, poems, recipes, proverbs, prayers, anecdotes, medical information: anything they wished to refer to at a later time.

In The Nineteenth Century Lady's Commonplace Book some quotes have been included for your enjoyment, specifically from the works of Anthony Trollope. Trollope was a favoured author in the second half of the nineteenth century, writing entertainingly of the gentry, of politicians and of the clergy of England. He was read for pleasure and recreation by the nineteenth century lady.
