Administrative/Biographical history:

At the time these documents are dated (1818-1829) a "John Souter" frequently appears in The Times newspaper advertising newly published books which can be bought at his shop, 73 St Paul's Churchyard. As the John Souter in these documents was a member of the Stationers' Company it is possible that they were the same man.


Scope and content/abstract:

Papers of the Souter family, including letters from the Stationers' Company to John Souter, 1818-1829; letters of administration for Mary Sowter of the Strand, 1834; and bill to John Souter for legal charges in enfranchisement of copy-holds in Lambeth Manor, 1845.
