The ledger is made at the Ephrata Cloister using laid paper watermarked CB, (Christian Bauman). It is marked with understandable wear from the business of the farmer. It measures approx. 12.5 x 8.25 x 0.75.” There pages in the ledger book is intact and binding is still good considering it’s over 225 years old! There is foxing and toning on the pages, and the covers are very worn (as seen in the photos). What an interesting piece of history, and great genealogical tool! Happy Bidding!
