An Old Ledger Book: Handwriting in Ink

$32.00 USD

late nineteenth century
7 3/4" x 5" x 1 3/4", 19.5 cm x 12.75 cm x 4.5 cm

This is a very nice, old daifukucho, a hand bound, hand written book which could have originally been used for inventories, for accounting, for ledgers or as a record of loans.

This one is thick with many pages, each one filled with hand writing done in sumi or charcoal-based ink.  Its two abraded covers show hand written kanji or Chinese characters. 

A good example of a traditional daifukucho, with its original, intact cording. 

Really attractive.
