Response to Re: Richard Lawrence Hool

 

Hi Debs,
I am glad this post provoked some interest.Look forward to your list of books.I am browsing through a few old ones and shall post a list shortly.

One of the things that fascinates me about the old books is the absolute confidence that comes through in the writing.

I mentioned in a previous post that I was looking through old commercial directories on line.Anyway in an 1880's Kelly's Directory of Devon I came across an advertisement for a Plymouth herbalist W.H.Box,quite adamant that his pills cure legions of diseases.Actually this is another old firm that still survives,it was absorbed into Rickard Lane's another old Plymouth firm.The history can be found on their website.

Kevin
