OM TH9505.N5  1909  [168] p. ;  28 x 40 cm.    A significant number of pages have been removed from the register.  The scrapbook has been through a fire, so the pages are smoky and brittle, especially at the edges. The scrapbook into which the documents have been pasted bears a label on the inside front cover reading in part "Mark Twain's Scrap Book Patent No. 477040 Issued June 14, 1892 ... Daniel Slote & Co."   A collection of handwritten and typed notes, memoranda, and other official communications pertaining to the New York City Fire Department, with several layers of papers pasted onto each page. Most papers bear the letterhead "Headquarters, Fire Department, City of New York" or similar. The items range in date from 1906 to 1909.
