About this Item

VEECH, James. The Monongahela of Old; Or, Historical Sketches of South-Western Pennsylvania to the Year 1800. Pittsburgh, [1910]. [2], [17]-259pp. plus numerous extra-illustrations. Modern three quarter purple morocco and purple cloth, ornate gilt-tooled spine, t.e.g. Minute browning. Gilt morocco bookplate of noted Americana collector Frank Cutter Deering on front pastedown. Very good. Howes V-64. The fourth issue, and the most complete, of this thorough history of Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Incomplete editions were issued in an extremely limited number of copies in 1857, 1860, and 1892. Veech took over this history from a friend, Freeman Lewis, when the project began to exceed Lewis's intentions. A note at the end of the preface claims: "It will remain the standard of history of Fayette county and will be referred to as such by all future historians of Western Pennsylvania." Veech dedicates the greatest amount of text to the French and Indian War and the Mason-Dixon line. A nice county history, made more attractive by Deering's extra-illustrations.
