This series comprises various invoices, customer accounts and receipts received by SO in the course of his business activities. The records include information on his business dealings and are related in many cases to the correspondence described in SO/1. Researchers interested in Oldknow's commercial dealings with particular individuals and firms should therefore consult material in both series. Some material which had been mis-filed in this series has been removed and put in the appropriate series; in several cases material which could be more properly considered business correspondence was placed in SO/1. This series incorporates material which was part of the 1951 accession and was not recorded in the original handlist. In the original handlist, Eng MS 752, this material was arranged alphabetically, although on examination this appeared to have been done imperfectly. The material has been rearranged chronologically by year, and alphabetically within a particular year; some material in this series cannot be dated.
