Description:
The George Josiah Sturges Walker Notebook is a manuscript book containing class notes written in 1826 by George Josiah Sturges Walker, a student at the Litchfield Law School. Covered in brown leather, this book consists of a number of smaller notebooks or folds of notebook paper which were trimmed before being bound together. Written in a graceful period hand, these pages were almost certainly recopied from rough notes, or from course summaries in circulation among Litchfield students. Walker's notes, comprising more than 450 pages, summarize lectures given by Judge James Gould on Master and Servant, Contracts, Bailments, and Executors and Administrators.
