More About this Item


Description: [Manuscripts/Account Books] 3 Account Books. ++ Accounts payable to William Hooper, a wagoneer, 1833-1845. Hooper was a teamster who apparently lived in Dauphin County, Pa. This is his record of accounts for his business activities. Hooper hauled a wide variety of material for his neighbors including limestone, boards, shingles, brick, clay, hay, corn fodder, coal, and even dung. He also quarried stone on occasion. One customer, Jacob Cline (a shoemaker) worked off $4.07 by making shoes, 25 cents by picking apples that same day, and $2.33 by mending shoes (pp7-8). Irregularly paginated with some pages mostly or entirely blank. 50pp text (excluding blank pages), 6pp index, later financial notes (on last leaf), blank pages, and financial notes on rear inside cover. Ruled wove paper, 1/4 leather and marbled board, 4to. External rubbing, corner wear, dampstaining. ++ Account book maintained by Edwin E. Lorentz, the son of a Moravian brick maker. 1864-1877. Lorentz lived in Emmaus, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. This volume is a record of commercial, banking and grocery debits and credits. It also contains profits/losses, investments, and partnership agreements. This is possibly a record kept for a business owned by someone Lorentz worked for, although at some time in his life Lorentz did operate a business on Walnut Street in Chicago and in Allentown in 1877. He was later a cashier of the Emmaus National Bank. 234pp in a neat hand. Preruled wove paper, 1/4 red leather and marbled board. Losses to marbled paper. Front hinge fully cracked. Loose. ++ Treasurer’s account book of Susquehanna Lodge #80, International Order of Odd Fellows, 1868-1888. Kept by the treasurers of Lodge 80 in Columbia, PA (Philip Shreiner, A. G. Musser, Samuel H. Boyd, J. L. Auweiterz, and Samuel M. Stape). This largely comradely order met weekly for social, fraternal, and charitable reasons, and had, by the 1880s, lodges in every state. Record lists dues paid and expenses of the lodge for gas, janitorial services, postage, coal, travel expenses, telegrams, stationery, ice, and so forth. A $40 death benefit was paid for members or their spouses. 287pp including intermittent blank pages in text. Preruled wove paper in light brown leather with red and black spine labels. Usual wear (loss to leather, front hinge starting, 3 leaves removed at end of volume, at least 1 leaf has tear to text). ++ Sold with all faults. 7.4 Lb.
