Title: Notebook of Handwritten Notes on Various Subjects, Circa 1840. Manuscript Bound in a 17th Century Armorial Binding for a Duke of Orleans
Condition: Very Good
A mid 19th century notebook of handwritten notes on various subjects, including notices on several towns in the Dordogne, work carried out in Montignac, a profile of the road to Saint-Rabier, and more. The notebook likely belonged to a public works contractor since several stone extraction works; carpentry and iron supplies are recorded in this notebook. This notebook has repurposed a morroco red armorial binding of the 17th century, bearing the French royal arms for a Duke of Orleans.
One finely bound manuscript in 12mo, 24 inscribed leaves and a folding table, and numerous blank leaves
This manuscript is in very good shape, with some rubbing and wear to the binding, with a soft spine. There is some foxing and scattered staining throughout.
