Administrative/Biographical history:

A.R. Chamberlayne was a London solicitor who from time to time opened offices elsewhere and entered into various partnerships. He also dealt in real estate on his own account. So far as possible the books and papers dealing with these two activities are listed separately but it seems that a clear-cut distinction between them was not always maintained.
