An immense family history, compiled over 25 years, of the Spurr family of Nova Scotia in Canada (the author settled there) and previously in the Dorchester and Stoughton areas of Massachusetts. The history stretches from the 1620s to the present day (as of the late 1980s).
This set is in very good condition but there are a few scuffs and marks to the cloth boards and page edges. The contents are in good, clean condition and the binding is secure in all volumes.
