About this Item

Charming inside and out, plus contains a hidden treasure laid-in -- a booklet about the Dorchester Burying Ground published in 1901. The main book is oversized at 8"x11-1/4" and is beautifully decorated at face with silver printing and ornamentation. Book is tightly bound and clean as a whistle with no names or writing. Only fault is light rubbing to spine and a small bit of wear to crown and tail. Appears to have been published via advertising dollars, as there are many ads from the area at both front and back. Test offers history, plus photographs printed on coated paper and a delightful scattering of small drawings. You can read about life around Dorchester Bay, the area's highways and biways, education, the Everett House, Dorchester Heights, the Dorchester Women's Club, Lucy Stone, the oldest apple trees, the Dorchester Medical Club and much more. The accompanying booklet is written by John A. Fowle and was published by the Dorchester Historical Society. It discusses the cemetery circa 1634 with emphasis on the headstones and epitaphs. Shows wear, but is intact. Bookseller Inventory # 20453HNC

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
