1829 Antique HANDWRITTEN MATH JOURNAL calligraphy cipher, Maine Sea Captain.


This amazing leather bound spencerian math journal or cypher was written in 1829 by Albion Atwood of Maine. In searching his name I found that he was in fact Captain Atwood (using the find a grave site) , a sea captain, but was not able to find the name of his ship.

This piece was purchased out of a single family estate that had been owned since the early 1900’s In Rockport Maine.

Every page in the book is full, mostly with fine flowing spencerian scripting, but some pages are penciled in figures, around 80 pages or so. It is solidly bound, covered in worn simple leather. There’s some slight cracking at the front and back interior spine, but no looseness. Honestly overall this piece is in stunning condition for its age. A true piece of Americana Folk Art.

There are simple and complex math equations, as well as “consumer math” type problems like calculating for wine, or taxes, or British pounds vs American dollars etc. all the sorts of things a merchant Captain might need to know.

There are no smoke mold or mildew smells.
