19th century
Purchased by Susan H. Myers (Division of Ceramics and Glass) in Hyde Park, N. Y., ca. 1978. Transferred to Division of Cultural History later because of content.
This 433-page ledger is leather-bound (deteriorating); each page is filled with hand-written entries recording sales of merchandise and payment receipts by customer name. This is apparently the daily account journal of a general hardware store (name, location, and recorder's name unknown). Sales amounts are recorded in the right column; receipts (both in cash and in kind) are recorded in left column.
