Beers and Co., Philadelphia, 1882, being a small quarto format hardcover copy that has been rebound and with new marbled endpapers, but that has incorporated the front and rear boards.

Rebound in brown buckram cloth, and with all edges marbled. Extremely scarce in the trade, especially in this condition.

Book III comprises Township Histories, then Biographical Sketches, then Biographical Portraits, and then eds with sections devoted to Miscellaneous and Illustrations. . . . Very Good
