One of the items I purchased from our large, local annual antique show and sale two weeks ago was an antique ledger. Today I’m sharing four scanned pages from the ledger with you.
The ledger belonged to a man named Augustus Terry Clarke. Because of references in the ledger to locations such as London, England, and Aberdeen, I believe Mr. Clarke lived in the United Kingdom. Also, the currency Mr. Clarke used for his financial ledger entries was pounds, shillings and pence.
The ledger includes entries for the years 1832, 1833, 1834 and 1835. It is filled with fascinating financial details below handwritten calligraphy headings, such as: Books and Binding, Cash Payed, Cutlery, Groceries, Haberdashery, Hardware, Perfumery, Postage and Parcels, Shoes and Boots, Silverplate Jewellery, Stationery, Sundries, Tailoring, and Travelling Expenses.
If you are interested in working with (or simply enjoying) more pages from this wonderful antique ledger, I listed a scanned set of 20 additional pages to my Etsy shop this week.
