First edition. The scarce first edition of this important work. This copy belonged to Dr. James A. Spalding, who contributed many of the biographies in this volume. He used this book for his own notes, apparently for the purpose of revisions. The books were later donated to the Maine Genealogical Society, and contain their institutional bookplate as well as a later bookplate of another private collector. Besides Spalding's notes and marginalia and the bookplates the books are very good with light normal shelfwear. A nice association copy of an important work.
