1.   Canfield, William H.
Old Settlers' Souvenir Album [Sauk County Wisconsin].
Publisher: No place: (Apparently) Published by Author, No date [1901].
First Edition Hardback octavo in white cloth with a faux alligator finish. 53 pages plus ads and a portrait of the publisher of the Sauk County Democrat, perhaps the publisher or printer. A scarce early history of an area of south-central Wisconsin, Baraboo being the county seat of Sauk County. Lots of photographic portraits including frontis of the author. An assortment of letters, biographies, minutes of meetings of the Old Settlers' Association. A funeral notice tipped in near the front, and several pages of religious materials by Canfield as well as a pamphlet containing argument on separation of church and state. These extra materials are on different, more acidic, paper but they all appear to have been inserted when the book was bound. Some irregular darkening to the rear covers; extremities modestly worn with the tips worn through to the boards, and the cloth at the front joint (the exterior hinge)is beginning to separate at top and bottom. The binding is sound but the rear endpaper has separation of a couple inches. The extra pages mentioned above are moderately toned. There are, therefore, several flaws, but all are of minor severity. Hardcover Hardcover Very good-

First Edition Hardback 12mo, about 7.5 inches tall, in green cloth decorated in gilt and black. 221 pages illustrated by a handful of engravings and portraits and a bird's eye view of the city as a frontis.
