Found this homemade scrapbook yesterday. The original book was "Laws of New York" and I believe it was printed in the late 1700s. The newspaper clippings pasted in really obscure most of the test, but based on the dates I can read, and the print itself, I think it is safe to declare it that old.
It's a shame, the book would most likely be very valueable, but it's interesting nontheless to get a glimpse into the past.
If you like it, check it out on eBay.
