Chinese manuscript notebook, undated - possibly first half of 19th century

 Item — Box CLX-A-371
Identifier: Coll-1848/18-0115
Scope and Contents Small concertina notebook in Chinese, manuscript. Bought in an Oxfam bookshop for 3£. Could be a notebook kept by someone who was fitting out a ship for a voyage, or some similar occupation. The notebook has separate sets of ink and pencil Chinese characters, and so perhaps the book has been used for two separate projects. A few pages have what appear to be pencilled English translations of a few characters and occasional transcriptions in Arabic numerals.
Dates: undated - possibly first half of 19th century
