Abstract:

The volume includes a daily record of sales of books to booksellers; cash accounts, 3 November 1846-10 August 1852; and lists of books returned on consignment, 16 June 1848 to 4 October 1852. The company dealt with booksellers in many localities in addition to Pennsylvania and New York, e.g., Kentucky, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia. The books were primarily biographical, historic, and religious in nature. The firms that did business with Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co. included: F.F. Brainard of Norfolk, Va., and O.W. Kibbe of Springfield, Mass. The firm was involved in distributing James Fenimore Cooper's Naval History, several books by John Frost (1800-1859), and John Sanderson's Biography of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence.
