Excellent book about history of note-taking in early-modern Europe

Great book, I recommend for everybody interested in the cultural history/history of note taking or generally history/philosophy of externalizing knowledge, as - as book title suggest - main purpose of note taking systems could also be described as "enabling oneself to forget" (and to be able to find it out securely later) and thus to free one's mental capacity for deeper thinking.
