Description
Scope/Content: Manuscript account book interleaved with printed book.
Scope/Content: Manuscript account and memoranda book kept from about 1700 to 1707 by an unknown man living somewhere near London. Most records kept on blank pages at preceding and following printed text of Rider's British Merlin for 1701, though there are also some notations on the printed calendar pages. Most account notations appear to be for horse or carriage hires and there are many lists of towns throughout Essex and Hertfordshire to which the writer traveled. There are also notes of money "lost at cards" or "tables." There are two erasable leaves containing still legible notations in the set of blanks preceding the printed almanac.
Condition: Bound in contemporary black leather with gilt stamping on covers and gilt acorns on spine; embossed fore-edge clasps with ring catches attached by flat-topped stylus; marbled endpapers.
