The History of Notebooks

The history of writing began in Mesopotamia around 3200 BC and Mesoamerica around 900 BC saw the first forms of written communication engraved on stone. Thomas W. Holley from Massachusett is said to have invented the first legal pad in 1888 in an attempt to amass more space for information on paper. He made use of scraps from numerous factors and stitched them together.

In 1902 J.A. Birchall from Australia owned a stationery store, and found the existing legal pad inefficient and as such glued together a stack of halved sheets of paper, supported by a sheet of cardboard and named it Silver City Writing Tablet.
