Publication Date: 1803
Book Condition: Very Good+
Full leather over boards; 6.5 by 15 inches; approx. pp. 600 (with 12 tabbed leaves at the front, followed by 263 leaves hand-numbered on the verso), and nearly all full. A true ledger with debits and credits, showing more than half were in rum and brandy, by the gallon, quart, or pint -- not by the mug as would be the case for a saloon. Barter was used as a means of payment. The store also sold building supplies, dry goods, tobacco, sundries. Much of the sales were to nearby Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Many of the customers were old military men -- Captain John Upton, Lieutenant Josiah Bailey, Lieutenant John Litch, etc. Information on other Litchfield inhabitants can be gleaned, such as the doctor in town was Abraham Haskell and the minister Reverend Timothy Flint. Boards quite scuffed; internally clean and legible. Bookseller Inventory # D4128
