The Ohio Supreme Court Law Library learned last year about three books found in the Ohio Statehouse archives. The books belonged to the Supreme Court, and the law library took official steps to acquire them. Two of the books log information from the early 1900s, and the third has entries dating back to 1858. Preserved within their delicate pages are meticulously handwritten accounts of Court expenses from those time periods, along with a catalog of the Court’s property made in 1911.
