Gift of Mrs. J.H. Barker to the Free Public Library, Newark, on November 12, 1931. Acquired by NJHS on November 1, 1999.
The collection starts on page one of the ledger, but begins at Formula 95. It is unclear as to whether the individual who created the formulas donated the ledger. It is also uncertain if the ledger was used by a printing company or by an individual printer.
Newark City Directories, 1903-1925.
