On offer is a super, interesting, original manuscript 19th Century scrapbook and in many ways a commonplace book. We believe the book had two owners contributing to the content. The first few pages have clippings pasted over older entries. An ownership inscription by Miss Nellie Douglass of Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York leads us to believe that Nellie is the person that later, circa 1880s, used the original journal for clippings and a few scraps such as a charming old Sag Harbor Bank note for twenty cents tipped in. The original owner who provides 95% of the handwritten content was likely Maltby Geltson Rose as indicated by a copy of a summons signed by him a noted Justice of the Peace who used the book 150+ pages circa 1820 originally as a copy book and catchall for recipes [receipts], remedies and cures, religious sentiment and numerous observations and entries about his life and times.
