Description

This ledger-style wallet binding in limp vellum is a sturdy cover for a private library catalogue. It would have been a light and convenient travel companion on book buying trips, allowing the owner ready access to the contents of the library. In both form and materials, it is typical of record books from this period, such as account and receipt ledgers.
