On offer is this 8-1/2" x 13" antique ledger with handwritten manuscript entries from 1810 - 1827 from a ship named "The Edward" out of New York. The ledger is complete from June 6, 1810 - June 1812 ends and then begins again from March 1826 - Sept.1827. The ledger stops during the War of 1812 and for a few years after. The ship traveled from New York to Bristol which was impossible during the few missing years as America was at war with Canada. Fascinating to consider that the one blank page represents the war of 1812 and then lost until 1826. Cover is rough but the inside pages are in good condition with some age toning. Approx 175 pp.
