    Early Burk Family of Vermont Notebook, 42 pp., 8vo (6.25" x 8"), Woodstock, Vermont, ca. 1810s, heavy board covers with leather-bound spine. It appears as if this book passed through several hands during the early 19th century as it contains quite a variety of entry types, the most important of which is a listing of children born to one Ebid M. Burk during the course of two marriages. His first wife, Prudence, gave birth to eight children between 1789 and 1802, the year of her death. Burk's second marriage to a Polly Hammons resulted in two more children in 1804 and 1806 respectively. These records are neatly penned in the hand of ninth child Albert Burk who, according to a line on the same page, died in 1836. Acrostics, conventional poems, recipes, arithmetic problems and financial entries are among the book's other contents. Some pages are missing and the cover has considerable wear. The binding, however, remains tight. Stains and soiling throughout. Good condition.
