On offer here is a small library of the bound archival records of a notary public, especially notary public ledgers, including the books and registers for the Supreme Court of the State of New York (a trial court), that belonged to a New York notary public named John Henry Remsen.  These volumes contain manuscript descriptions of the details of the cases that came before the court between 1796 and 1798. The defendant and plaintiff are both listed, as well as the amount of damages sought, if applicable. A collection that furnishes precise records about the activities of a central New York Court at the end of the Federal Era, this unique collection is an opportunity to supplement the Law Library’s Trials collections with original documents related to New York cases.
