- We have an antique Day book / Ledger book which has dates as far back as 1850 - 1889 or so. The book measures about 15" x about 7" x about 5/8" in thickness. It is very fragile with the binding in tough condition. It is still together on the binder but needs to be handled with tlc to stay this way. There are about 40 pages written on to differing degree's - most of the 40 pages are almost top to bottom but there are a few that have sparse writing. I would say almost 1/2 the book is written in. It is a very neat book. Many of the entries are grocery and farm but I did see a few entries regarding sale of land ect.
