Henry Hollingsworth's commonplace book reflects his interest in astrology, alchemy, poetry, and chemistry. Many of the entries are Hollingsworth's abstractions from other texts. An unidentified, printed concordance of the Bible is bound-in at the middle of the volume. Bound in contemporary full calf. Hollingsworth was born in England, and in 1682 followed his father, Valentine Hollingsworth, a Quaker, to the area that would become Philadelphia. Henry assisted Thomas Holmes, a surveyor in laying out the plan for that city.
