About this Item

Small manuscript receipt 2 1/2" x 7 1/2" dated Feb 8, 1792 and signed "Daniel Bayley" Soiling and folds but all writing is bold. In 1764 Daniel Bayley, a potter by trade, bought a pottery business and shop and on Summer Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. He engaged in the making and selling of earthenware but at the same time began to print and sell music and singing books, one of the very first American printers to do so. He died prior to March 27, 1792 (when his estate entered probate), making this one of the last documents he signed. His signature is considered one of the scarcest and most difficult to obtain of any early American printers. Bookseller Inventory # X217
