Early 19th Century Rhode Island Company Receipt Book.
Providence, Rhode Island: , 1800-1801.. Rectangular small 8vo, (8" x 5"), split calf, receipt book 1801 written on cover some faded writing on other cover, about 85 leaves. Top cover detached, rear almost detached, covers worn, small pasted label on pastedown, a few pages slightly loose, some aging and browning, and a little staining, but internally very good overall. Interesting early Rhode Island business receipt book for the Jacob Whitman & Co. Based in Providence, Whitman appears to be an auctioneer. Consignors used Whitman to sell a broad range of items, including tobacco, tea, old cloths, chairs, soap and even chocolate. Most of the writing is legible (some more than others), and many consignors signed the book to acknowledge receipt of payment. There are about 85 leaves, and information is recorded on both sides of the page.
