Elk County PA Bank, Railroad, Coal Mining+ Antique+Rare Handwritten Ledger 1897




























Description

Beautiful old ledger book filled with records of dozens of companies and individuals operating in central and western Pennsylvania before the turn of the last century ~

Of particular interest are financial records for numerous railroad companies no longer in existence. 

Part of a group of ledgers belonging to C. H. M'Cauley, Esq., an attorney and shareholder in the Elk County National Bank as well as several other businesses in and around Ridgway, PA.

 

*This auction is for ONE ledger book ONLY*

 

DESCRIPTION: Beautifully bound in full leather over thick boards. Tooled or etched design. Applied contrasting leather bands with gilt accents. Raised bands and labels to spine. All edges dark green. Beautifully marbled, glossy end papers. Book maker's label inside front cover: WILLIAM MANN COMPANY; , BLANK BOOK MAKERS, STATIONERS, PRINTERS AND LITHOGRAPHERS, 529 Market Street, PHILADELPHIA. Additional label with ordering information. Alphbetical Index with individual leather tabs for each letter, plus "Mc". 504 pages with lines in red and blue.

Large Size: 113/4 x 161/4".

The ledger begins in 1897 and ends in 1901. It is filled with entries on all but about 5% of the pages.

The other books pictured are being sold separately. Mr. M'Cauley was a very prominent businessman, as well as attorney for major logging, railroad, tanning and banking interests in Elk County and other areas of Pennsylvania and western New York. He became a partner in the Elk County Bank in 1888.
