Rare Antiquarian Book – Register of the Times, 1795
A register was used to document all major transactions of a city or government. The goal was to create a living record of all events that occurred during a specific time period for later reference. This is a precursor to modern bibliophiles and collected texts that eventually we find in digital terms like Wikipedia. However, these would have been crafted and curated by leading experts and placed into production only after careful editing.
This particular rare book is from London, England, denoting the year of activity leading up to publication in 1795.
