To many hand-printers, eager to get ink under their fingernails, the keeping of accounts is usually the last thing on their mind. However, in any business where more than one person and private purse is involved, book-keeping and dealing with the ephemeral scraps of paper that document such transactions, is a must. On display is a Bibliography Room account sheet for 1971-2, royalty and receipt slips, an invoice and payment for a lavish sherry party (which included glasses), and a bill to a Christchurch bookseller that was presumably written off.
Note by Keith Maslen on non-payment of a bill to a Christchurch bookseller that was presumably written off, 4 February 1975; 23 September 1981
