With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Math and Calligraphy Notebook Bound with Older Newspaper, Greenough, Richard [Richard Greenough Atkinson]
1 Greenough, Richard [Richard Greenough Atkinson] Math and Calligraphy Notebook Bound with Older Newspaper
Atkinson, New Hampshire (?) 1816, 1817 Wraps made of newspaper Very Good 
Tall 4to, 31 by 19 cm. Unpaginated, 29 leaves, or 38 pp., mostly dealing with arithmetic and other mathematical formulations, with a decided bent towards the practical financial functions, such as interest calculations and discounting. It is a fairly typical such surviving notebook of that era, but for the final page of maxims written in an ornamental cursive calligraphic hand. Also three pages of legal forms (quitation deed, a will, a promissory note). Notwithstanding the calligraphy at the end and ornamental lettering elsewhere, the notebook is far from entirely neat, with many of the mathematical calculations looking as one might expect in a student's notebook. Still, the notebook belongs to a bygone era of pedagogy. Moderate wear generally, with some wormholing of the newspaper wraps. 
Price: 150.00 USD
