Full Morocco Late 18th Century Daily Notebook and Slipcase [Good]
Offer updated on 5/13/2021
Oblong, 8.5 by 15 cm. Eight stiff pages, with the day of the week stamp printed on top of seven of these pages, and one without such a stamp. The book was intended for erasable notes, and thus constant re-use, as a daily planner or the like. There are penciled notes within dated 1796, and thus our dating. The staples used to bind have a twist in the center -- we have never seen such staples before. With gilt turn-in decoration around the edge, and also a slipcase with gilt decoration more or less the same. The booklet itself has moderate wear, rubbing and staining on its red morocco. The slipcase is missing its narrow bottom, and has a greater amount of soiling and wear, as one would expect. Still, a very unusual survivor -- we have never seen a planner of this vintage quite like this. Full Morocco. Full morocco slipcase.
