    A handsome looking book, but what I'd love to have is a full transcript of the notebooks. Does such a tome exist?
    Kind regards, Sam Flynn

      Only about 40 of them (10%) have even been digitised. The originals are available at the LSE library.

        Indeed, Gary, I've often perused the digitised/scanned pages, but my ideal would be for someone to publish a printed transcript. Even an subset or anthology would be interesting.

          Indeed, Gareth. Its possible that dozens, if not hundreds, of them haven’t been opened since the 19th century. Who knows what treasures they contain.

          I accessed a couple of the STGITE notebooks a little while back. The annoying thing was that they didn’t contain any names. But they did identify which houses were considered to be brothels at the time (June, 2887), which was very revealing.
