Ledgers A and B record customer accounts, noting the bookseller, author, or whoever ordered the work, the format, the type used, collation, charge for printing, date of payment, and other details of the job. Ledger P keeps tally of the amount of paper ordered and the number of printed sheets sent to the binder. Ledger C records piece-work wages paid to compositors and pressmen. Miscellaneous other records of the firm--bills, receipts, other accounts, etc., are included. The ledgers are useful not only for printing and publishing history and bibliography, but for business and social history.
