I love the idea of writing in a notebook that was started almost 200 years ago with a header dated 1838 but never filled.... waiting all this time for someone to launch in with something to say! It looks as though a few pages were torn out at the back but is near complete and completely empty, with gorgeous hand-marbled covers and leather spine and corners. A perfect gift to oneself, I'd say, perhaps to be started on December 15, as its previous owner did, or else Jan 1!
8" x 6 3/4". 62 pages (page = front + back). Overall good condition, pages blank and clean with a little minor toning, paper is faintly ruled laid paper. A little wear to the binding but still holding together well, pages tightly bound.
