Price: $1,800.00

Hardcover. Thick folio (10" x 15"). Handwritten in Hungarian and Latin. Full mottled calf, gilt lettered and decorated spine in seven compartments, patterned endpapers, all edges stained red. A few minor scuffs, corners are bumped, near fine. A chronological ledger with entries spanning the years 1411-1823, neatly and completely written in three or four hands on both sides of the hand-ruled leaves. The first 37 entries, comprising the first three quarters of the ledger, were completed in 1808 (Most are records from the 17th and 18th Centuries). The consecutive entries that follow, numbered 38-64, were written beginning in 1811 in a different hand. They record entries from the years 1624-1823. A beautifully written ledger. Three narrow columns at the left page margins provide record numbers and dates. Several entries have been annotated in the same contemporary hand, including some neatly crossed out without affecting the legibility of the written text. There are also a very few scattered later marginal annotations and underlining. A handsome, well-preserved volume.
