1849 Unused Notebook
leather bound for Peter Mellish Le Cocq (Guernsey interest)
This is a rather lovely unused leather bound notebook. It measures 25 × 20cm, with "Album of Events, 1849, Peter Mellish Le Cocq" stamped in gilt to the front. There is a giltstamped margin and blindstamped design to the boards,the spine with gilt decoration and five raised bands. All edges are gilt. There is a booksellers ticket to the ffep "S Barbet, 25 High Street" (which I believe refers to Guernsey in the Channel Islands). A brief search online reveals a Peter Mellish Le Cocq being born on 16 April 1849.
The contents are in good order, all pages unused and clean, with secure binding. The leather binding is faded to the spine and rubbed quite heavily to the corners and edges but remains an attractive item.
