NEW JERSEY HISTORICAL SOCIETY. Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society [later, New Jersey History]. Newark: Vol. 1, 1845, through vol. 104, 1986. Illus., plates, maps, etc. First few bound volumes in half leather, rest bound in dark blue cloth through 1963, remainder unbound as issued. Lacking Second Series vols. 6-13; also a few articles clipped out and mostly replaced by trimmed and laid-in xeroxes. Otherwise fine and complete in 104 volumes. A consecutive 145-year run, from the first issue, of the largest single source of New Jersey history. The Proceedings began as a mid-nineteenth century antiquarian journal, with transcriptions of colonial and Revolutionary War-period letters and diaries, articles on military history, local history, genealogy, and biography. In the twentieth century the format became increasingly scholarly, and over the years the more administrative "proceedings" of the society were gradually dropped from the journal. In 1967 its name was changed to New Jersey History. Over the next four decades the magazine faced several identity crises and underwent various editorial policy changes, largely for the worse. In 2006 the journal was discontinued as the poor New Jersey Historical Society reinvented itself for the umpteenth time while continuing its sad downward spiral. Yet the magazine is, and has always been, the only scholarly journal devoted to New Jersey history, and a complete run represents a vast wealth of information on New Jersey. With the publication in 1996 of Donald A. Sinclair's superb index, this tremendous resource is now readily available to the researcher. This present set was assembled by us over a long period of time and is only the second complete set we have had for sale in 35 years. We will supply to the purchaser at no charge the few missing/volumes numbers whenever we can find them. Bookseller Inventory # 8709
