DescriptionColonial American Ledger Book of Hezekiah Hudson from Hingham, Massachusetts, with entries dating from 1764 through 1779. 168 pages, 8" x 12", containing hundreds of entries with customer names, signatures, and balances due. Contains an interesting array of customers, including relatives of Abraham Lincoln, prominent local citizens, and local military figures of the area. Hudson was a blacksmith and gunsmith in the small Massachusetts town.
The ledger book cover is very worn; the pages are frayed and stained, a few have worked loose from the binding, but most of the text is legible. On the cover is written several times "Nantasket" (the area in Massachusetts that Hingham is located). This is an historically important piece that gives insight into everyday living during one of the most important periods in American history. Near fair. Also offered are two pages (9" x 14.25") with ledger entries from April 1763 to May 1770. Some stains; chipping and tears along right border. Fine.
