Richard and Daniel Russell, sermon notebook comparison (American Antiquarian Society)


These two sermon notebooks of Richard Russell (father) and Daniel Russell (son) are both at the American Antiquarian Society and provide an excellent opportunity for side by side comparison. Looking at the range of physical formats and recording styles used can greatly enhance our understanding of the many ways people kept notes in the early modern period. The rest of the photos in this gallery are dedicated to showing some closer details of the respective preferences of father and son.
