the leather-bound ledger

Unearthed at a fall yard sale & never written in, this lovely old record book is gradually becoming a visual journal in the twenty-first century. Note the folios stamped in indigo ink.

The first entry.

Can anyone guess what these are?

Inking in progress (as of this morning).

How about frogs' feet and kidney bladders?

The "Record" photo is a knockout!

Regarding the two-page entry in the old Record book (pp 10 & 11); So this is what the Garden of Eden looked like...

The Wilson-Jones Co. seems to still be in business without the hyphen.

I am jealous of your leather bound ledger you lucky gal! Great find. I thought the images looked like webbed frogs or toads feet at the page end and a bulbous inflated frogs or toads throat at the top of the page. Stunning artwork. And that feather is a marvel.

Happy new year, everyone! No need to start off the year jealous, Kite (smile). I could keep my eye out for more such finds in the coming year if you like--just say the word. Also, although anonymous guessed the frogs' feet first, you correctly identified everything. Brava!
