1900 WASHINGTON STATE PENITENTIARY PRISON WARDEN LEDGER BOOK LIST OF PRISONERS

1900 WASHINGTON STATE PENITENTIARY PRISON WARDEN LEDGER BOOK LIST OF PRISONERS
This is an original circa 1900 soft leather bound 4 x 7" ledger book from the Washington State Penitentiary at Walla Walla.
The book was originally the property of Chas Hasslerflug(spelling may not be exact-it is hard to make out all of the letters). His name is embossed on the front cover and written at the top of the first page. I do not know if he was a warden or a prison guard, or other prison employee.
The lined book has close to 300 pages neatly filled in with listings of PRISONER NUMBER/PRISONER NAME/COUNTY/TERM/CRIME/DISCHARGE OR EXPIRATION DATE columns. The first 86 pages are crudely typed and the remaining pages are hand written. The earliest listed expiration date is in the year 1900, so that should date the book to right around 1899 or 1900. About the last quarter of the pages remain blank, with the exception of one later page that was used to list executions of which there are 11 listed dating from 1904 to 1907 with one commuted.
The book is in good overall condition for its age. The soft leather binding is intact. There is one interior page that is loose. All of the pages are intact and completely easily legible. There are a few dog-eared pages and some general light wear.
