About this Item

NEW YORK -- BUILDING PLANNER'S ACCOUNT BOOK -- [JACOB MILLER]. [New York]: 1833-1843. Thick 4to (130 x 160mm). Manuscript on paper, in English. Written in brown ink in at least a dozen hands, approximately half-full. Reverse calf, stamped in blind, single metal clasp (front board loose, some slight dampstaining). A diverse account book containing over 300 transactions, each individually signed and dated, detailing the amount received or dispersed by the bookkeeper in this early 19th century building practice. The records display receipt and exchange of money over items ranging from painting a house to completing a roof. Several well-known New York streets are named, Avenues C and D, 2nd and 4th, and streets Christie, Columbia, Broome and Allen, among some. Jacob Miller, who must certainly be affiliated with this building practice appears consistently in transactions either paying or receiving payment, "Quens L.I./ August 11, 1843/ Recid from Jacob Miller- twenty dollars in full for two months wages." Three transactions recorded at rear by Christopher Hibbins, detail a relatively large payment by Miller, totaling $2224.58 for the account of building a Church corner on Avenue C and 4th, dated October 23 and November 6, 1841 and March 1842.
