Caption:
George Cawte was a meticulous recordkeeper as well as bookbinder. Thanks to his apprentice's decendants we have these Day Books from 1858 to 1921 which provide an unprecedented window into the day-to-day life in a commercial bindery. This particular volume includes a list of business contacts, including female booksewers, a particularly suitable young female occupation in the otherwise male-dominated world of the book trades.
