About this Item

Soft Cover. Very Good/Wraps, Very Good. No Edition Stated. Privately Printed. Very nice, clean copy of a scarce title. Marred only by former owner's name written at top of front cover. Fascinating little book filled with history, aside from the name origins. For example, Ashland Ohio, was originally called Uniontown, but was changed for postal reasons in 1822. The new name "Ashland" was chosen by Congressman John Sloan in honor of Henry Clay whose historic Kentucky home was called Ashland. A book for a Buckeye to get lost in. Bookseller Inventory # 9735

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!
