This is a really fascinating manuscript, documenting a sliver of antebellum New Orleans material culture. It is an inventory of silver at Oaklawn in 1847, which was purchased along with an archive of manuscripts related to Alexander Porter, the U.S. Senator and sugar magnate who built Oaklawn Manor. The house still stands and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Terms: My listings are priced to include the option to split the purchase price into three payments (Purchase - 30 days - 60 days) as well as professional pack-and-ship or delivery for larger items. If you plan on paying in one installment and making pick-up or delivery arrangements yourself, please inquire for trade pricing. If you have something in mind that isn't covered above, feel free to get in touch - creativity is encouraged.
