Download or read book entitled Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall-Street by author: Herman Melville which was release on 16 October 2018 and published by BoD – Books on Demand with total page 60 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. I am a rather elderly man. The nature of my avocations for the last thirty years has brought me into more than ordinary contact with what would seem an interesting and somewhat singular set of men, of whom as yet nothing that I know of has ever been written:-I mean the law-copyists or scriveners. I have known very many of them, professionally and privately, and if I pleased, could relate divers histories, at which good-natured gentlemen might smile, and sentimental souls might weep. But I waive the biographies of all other scriveners for a few passages in the life of Bartleby, who was a scrivener of the strangest I ever saw or heard of.
