This is Volume ONE of a two Volume Set. This book is in Good+ to Near Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket. This book has a three quarter leather binding. The leather is worn and dry and the front spine joint has cracked. The text pages are clean and bright and the binding itself is in very solid,undamaged condition. Included are detailed biographies of numerous important figures of the area, along with full-page photographs of some of them. It appears that Volume one is mostly biography of prominent citizens of the county, while Volume two (the missing volume) covers more of the history of the county. Scarce in the original edition.
