Leatherbound ledger belonging to the half great-granduncle of the president, also named Abraham Lincoln, 88 pages, 8.5 x 15, labeled on the front cover, “Abraham Lincoln’s day Book, January 1st 1797.” The ledger tracks business transactions from 1797 through 1808, including entries for Joseph Boone for bushels of corn, beef, seed, and wheat. On pages 49 and 50, two entries note the 1806 and 1807 deaths of Lincoln and his wife, Anne Boone, who was a first cousin of Daniel Boone. The majority of the entries in the day book log payments are in cash, but also include some bartered services such as threshing flax, reaping, husking corn, cleaning oats, and making hay. In very good condition, with heavy wear, soiling, and loss to leather covers; interior pages in fine condition. A highly unusual piece recording the close association between the Lincoln and Boone families.
