Description

The leather binding is worn and patched with tape, and attempts at rehydration of the leather were only partially successful.  Handwritten reports on FDNY printed forms give location of the incident, location and pressure of the hydrant, numbers of officers and firemen accompanying the apparatus, and who did or did not accompany and why. Some reports give the cause of the fire. Sold with a small collection of 22 manuscript receipts from 1840-1843, including pay vouchers and other receipts for services, often  with the name of the recipient. The New York City Common Council is often cited. Perhaps most interesting are those receipts relating to rental space and payment for “fire watch.”
