Wow -- this a is a very nice Ohio collectible, as it was the author's, C. E. Sherman's, own copy. HE SIGNED his name and address on the front free endpaper and also stamped it. Nice, clean, tightly bound book. The word "final" has faded a bit on the spine, but can still be read. The envelope affixed as per design to back pastedown retains its original map, but caused foxing to opposite page. The map itself is in excellent condition. Book is illustrated throughout text with more maps and charts. Text is lengthy and does show some underlining and check marks likely made by author. What's especially interesting though is the ephemera left inside. These include a greeting card SIGNED by Thomas Ewing French who was a drafting professor at Ohio State and for whom the athletic field house is named. There is also a SIGNED letter from Sherman (author) to H.A. Rettig, the State Puchasing Agent. Also included is a letter dated 1920 from the Department of the Interior in Washington from D.H. Birdseye, Chief Geographic Engineer. This is dated 1920 and comes with some scribbled calculations by Birdseye. There are also other lesser, but interesting items too. Book has 327 pages. Note -- THIS IS VOLUME IV ONLY.
