Unpublished manuscript1806
MISS HOGGART, Manuscript Mathematics. Pp 138 partly on rectos only, no pages excised, a few blanks unused at end. Bound in completely original vellum covered notebook in Very Good condition. Miss HOGGART 1806 in ink to the front board and to the front free endpaper. Approx 15.5 cm x19.5 cm. One loose leaf tipped in gives tragic details of family members; “Reba Hoggarts Living in 18 years 500:0:0 My Dear Mother’s Funeral Mary Hoggart ( etc) My Dear Father’s Funeral Richd Hoggart (etc) My Dear Brother Joseph Hoggarts Funerall ( etc) Received of John Keating for Stock Firniture Fixtures & etc 160:0:0, afterwards paid my creditors (here follows a list of creditors ) 159:4:10 Further pages at the back of the book have been used for household accounts for the years 1821-28 listing mainly clothing for Reb(ecca) and a John Hoggart. The Mathematics exercises and written problems are not that unusual. What is surprising is that they were worked by a female child at all- we have never seen a young woman’s Mathematics book from this date before. There is a story here with the Hoggart family, which further research might well uncover.
condition: Very Good plus
binding: Full vellum
