Full title: Commemorative Biographical Record of the Upper Lake Region, containing Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizens and Many of the Early Settled Families
A fascinating genealogical resource—a collection of biographies of over 700 men of the Upper Lakes region, the area of North America including some of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Some of the entries have a full page photographic plate and facsimile signature. This is a scarce book, and made all the more so by it having belonged to someone contained within it.
A fair copy. Whilst the pages are clean and the inner binding is secure, the leather binding is heavily scuffed and marked. The front joint is weak and is nearly detached, the leather is rubbed to the edges and corners and has surface cracking to the spine. The hinges look like they have been neatly reinforced. However, this remain a decent copy of a rare title.
