Jacob Fine (fl. 1831-1857) was a shoemaker in Raritan, Somerset County, New Jersey.
The records consist of three daybooks and an account book used by Jacob Fine to track his shoemaking business.

The entries are by date and note customer name, job, and price. Fine’s account book dates from 1833-1852 and tracks individual customer’s accounts. These entries are by person and record date and money owed. The accounts are not indexed. There are also miscellaneous receipts, promissory notes, and accounts inserted between the pages of the four volumes.
