1 JOHN GOULD 1849 - 1855 MASSIVE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY AND JOURNAL DETAILING THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A LOCKPORT NEW YORK MAN WHO WOULD SOON BE ELECTED TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE OF NEW YORK
LOCKPORT NEW YORK NIAGARA COUNTY 1849 Fair Manuscript 
On offer is a super, original 1849 - 1855 historic manuscript relic of Western New York being a handwritten journal and diary of John Gould who was a member of the New York Legislature in 1856. Hand dated September 16, 1849 to June 10, 1855, hand numbered 455 pages makes for a very full, very detailed treasure trove of history for the Lockport, Niagara County area of New York State. Gould's family were deeply ensconced in the Lockport economy: farming wheat and barley, lumbering, horses and all manner of other trading throughout the area. Trade, economics, commerce, genealogy, religion, politics and local events are all detailed by a copious recorder of family daily doings and history. Gould also came back to the book using the free endpapers to leave notes on the death of his father, mother, building a new house on property bought in 1862, his son's? Charles Gould service volunteering (two years) 29 August 1862 during the Civil War with the 44 Elsworth Regiment New York. The approximately 6 3/4" x 8 1/4" once gorgeous book is absolutely full, handwritten in ink and features marbled endpapers, raised bands, original full leather with ornate trim. The exterior leather is quite worn, spine leather well chipped and separated at the back cover. The spine backing is cracked. Overall fair.
