Description

Here is a 1978 centennial edition of a rare early book illustrated by W.W. Denslow, reproduced by Unigraphics from the 1878 book. A tight, clean reproduction with over 100 Denslow illustrations entirely different from his better known work, and signed with his early “W.W.D” signature.

From the original title page:

Historical Sketch of Franklin County, Pennsylvania

Prepared for the Centennial Celebration held at Chambersburg, Penn’a, July 4th, 1876,

and Subsequently Enlarged By I. H. M’Cauley, Chambersburg, Pa., John M. Pomeroy, Publisher

To Which Is Added A Valuable Appendix By J. L. Suesserott, M.D., D. M. Kennedy And Others

And Embellished By Over One Hundred Lithographic Illustrations,

Drawn By W. W. Denslow.

Issued by D. F. Pursel, 1878.

This seems to be a faithful reproduction, with all the original Denslow drawings. 322 pp plus a detailed Name Index.  9″ x 6.25″, as the original, bound in buckram with what appears to be as-original gilt spine lettering (1878 date). All pages present and firmly attached, nice binding, near fine.

And please see my other rare Denslow items being listed this month.
