GAZETTEER & BUSINESS DIRECTORY OF TOMPKINS COUNTY NY 1868-1869

Syracuse: Printed at the Journal Office for Hamilton Child, 1868. Hard Cover. near Very Good binding. Item #4084

Octavo. 240 pp. Ex-library with only markings being early 20th century bookplate in the rear pastedown; ink inscription of the gift on the front free endpaper, and a stamped number on the bottom of page 7. Sympathetically rebacked in cloth, original backstrip perished; toning to the sides and wear to the extremities with some fraying at the corners. Contents are clean and bright but for 2 leaves that were printed in a blue/green paper that must have been more acidic as they are chipped around the margins. A fantastic snapshot into mid-19th century Tompkins County. In addition to dozens of full-page advertisements, there is a county history, biographical sketches of notable individuals, 1865 census data, and a city-by-city directory of residents. The directory offers names, streets, and profession--in the event the individual was a farmer, the acreage of the farmland is also noted. A remarkable reference. Folding frontispiece map. Uncommon.

Price: $150.00
