There is a commonplace book at Graeme Park, a Pennsylvania Historical and=
Museum Commission site. (The book there is called "The Willing Commonpla=
Book.") It was written in the 18th century by a woman who lived in the
restored house before and during the Revolutionary War era.
They have a wonderful curatorial staff and may have information on the
"genre" of commonplace books.
