Vintage Accounts Ledger Wages Book, Large size 40cm x 34cm.


Vintage Accounts Ledger Wages Book, Large size 40cm x 34cm.

Good original old accounts ledger. Vertical format.

Three quarters leather with scuffing, bumping and wear to the leather, with cloth over boards, also worn and marked. Some bumping and scuffing to outer cover (see photos). Text is generally nice and clean with some age darkening to the extended wider pages for names and earnings.

Almost unused - 6 of the wider pages have a list of names in script in the left hand column, but otherwise the book is empty. No financial entries, just employee names.

See photo with standard 330ml drinks can to get an idea of scale. Binding completely sound. 

Rare to find a ledger of this size in nice (almost) unused condition - this may be because the date lies within the Second World War period when many normal business operations were so disrupted.

Manufacturer: Brown & Rowley, London, UK. 
Date: 1944 - handwritten on manufacturer's label on inside cover, but book may have been produced earlier than this.

Often used as film prop/set decor.

Dimensions: 401mm high x 341mm wide x 32mm deep.

Substantial: Unpacked weight approximately 3.0kg.
