The town's history was intense with twenty-seven "first families" from the early 18th century until the Gold Rush when those tired of the hard scrabble farming dreamed of Gold, most returned and then a decade later the young men joined the Union army in the Civil War. With the Gilded Age, many young men fled to Boston where the economic opportunities were so much greater but again the town continued with their sons and daughters coming home regardless of what a wider world offered. Bound in red cloth lettered and ruled in gilt, spine lettering gilt. A fine bright copy.
