Account Books from a Country Store in Tiverton, Rhode Island, 1828-29 and 1831
From the seller: "1831. Leather and Boards. Book Condition: Internally Very
Good. 6 1/4" Wide x 15" and 16" Tall. Did any of your ancestors live in the
Tiverton, Rhode Island area in the 1800s? If so, these two ledgers give a
rare glimpse into their daily lives and shopping habits. One of these
account books contains a newspaper clipping which provides some provenance.
It is dated, in pencil, Feb. 1954 and reads, in part, "Mrs. Ruth Bliss
entertained the Smith Mills Travelers' Club with a review of several short
books, including 'Old Country Store,' by Gerald Carson. She showed an old
account book from a country store in Tiverton in which her family had had an
interest. The dates were in 1831 and the prices drew much interest by
comparison with present prices." The books' leather spines and marbled
boards are aged and deteriorating, but the contents are quite legible.
Interiors are soiled and possibly chewed. A brief sampling of some of the
names which appear repeatedly: Coggeshall, Chace, Manchester, Grinnell,
Moshier, Tripp, King, Dunfee, Dennis, Macomber, Simmons, Brownell, Dwelley,
Rounds, Slocum, Duvall, Cony, and more. The 16" tall account book, dated
1831, is thicker and in better interior condition than the 15" tall ledger.
This shorter book begins June 17, 1828 and ends April 23, 1829. The first 4
pages of this book were torn out and pages 5-10 have gaping holes. The final
2 pages of this ledger are Hiram Bliss's accounting of his cash flow. An
extremely rare find!"
