A Little Common Place Book

The perfect gift for the itinerant thinker. Part pocket-sized filing cabinet, part indexing guide, this hardcover notebook is a facsimile of a 1797 book that boasts an essay on the art of commonplacing as practiced by John Locke and 144 blank pages for collecting your own thoughts.
