Hoboken New Jersey has, according to author Jim Hans, more Firsts than any other square-mile town in the nation. Since Henry Hudson's navigator described Hoboken's green stone cliffs in 1609, Hoboken has been a special place. Jim Hans, "100% historian and 100% artist," gathers here 100 of his favorite Hoboken Firsts in a quirky and colorful collection of engravings, photos, paintings, maps, scapbooks, antique advertising, and more. Along with 100 Firsts, the book includes an introduction, a history of early Hoboken and the Stevens family (founders), a timeline, and a note on Hoboken landmark "The Clam Broth House." Lavishly designed by Joy Sikorski.
