Baltimore: Williams & Wilkins company, 1915-01-01. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. Good. Item #12809
Two volumes complete. Green cloth gilt. The finest copy we've had over the years and arguably the most important Eastern Shore of Maryland history ever written.
Compiled by Samuel Harrison, the most important historian in Eastern Shore history and edited and published posthumously by his son-in-law, Confederate Army officer Oswald Tilghman.
The early history of the Eastern Shore, for all intents and purposes, IS the history of Talbot County, as it comprised most of the Eastern Shore through much of the 17th century. Square Tight Bindings. Mild rubbing and wear. Gilt on spine somewhat darkened with age, as is usual with this set.
A handsome, scarce and superior set.
