London Record Office

The Record Office .—Connected in some degree with the Courts of Law and Equity, is the New Record Office , Fetter Lane, where is deposited a vast body of unprinted documents belonging to the state, of priceless value, including the far-famed Doomsday Book ; they having been previously scattered in various buildings about the metropolis.  Apply to the deputy-keeper for an order to inspect any but state papers of later date than 1688, for which the Home Secretary's special order is requisite.
