Caption title.
Ledger book with tan leather binding. Written inside cover: "Edward Dithdridge, New Brighton, Penna., Sept. 24/90." Several blank pages. Cover held on with tape. A few pages are drawings by a child/children (Edward Hay Dithridge?). Includes a report of seeing the glass blank for the reflecting mirror for the Yerkes Observatory in the cellar of Alvin G. Clark, the telescope maker. Recipes through Yellow from ox. of uranium are virtually the same recipes as Dithridge's [Batch book] (BIB 145478) p. 1-74, but this version lacks many of the amounts of manganese. Some page numbers written in the margins refer to [Batch book] (BIB 145454).
