Canvass book for recording voters and their political affiliation in an election sub-district, used by a Democratic Party committeeman to encourage turnout for Tilden and Hendricks, 1876. Original orange wrappers. Instructions to committeeman on inner cover, "in order that he may use it in getting to the Poll EARLY in the day all the Democrats, Reform Republicans and doubtful voters in his district." It appears not to have been used for its intended purpose, but as an account book by a laborer, likely the "Charles" who inscribed the cover. Vertical fold with some discoloration. We have not seen another.
