Booklet has pristine pages and is very tightly bound with no names or writing.

A bit of slight isolated edge wear is all that detracts from this handsome souvenir program.

Seller ID: 0425

Condition: Very good


Very nice book, designed in a pleasing style and tied with cording. Measures 8"x11" and has 68 pages of text and historic photographs. Oddly, there is no date, but it precedes 1923 because a timeline for progress on the current university construction shows that the library, the hospital and Wells Hall were all scheduled for completion by 1923-24. A nice look at the university, the town and the people -- even the ads are interesting. View more info

Publisher: Logan County, Ohio, Logan County Historical Society: 1976

Seller ID: 0491

Condition: Fine


Oddly, here is no date on this pristine booklet, but opening remarks show that it coincided with the 200th anniversary of the signing of the American Declaration of Independence which places it in 1976. Laid-in is a brochure which is a second clue since it commemorates the 1976 designation of East Court Avenue, in Bellefontaine, Ohio as a National Historical Civil Engineering Landmark. It seems that this small town was the first place in the country to have a road paved ... View more info

Condition: Very Good


Very nice, clean magazine devoted to history, folklore and nostalgia from Ohio and surrounding states. Published every two months.

Amongst the many -- and there ARE many -- are these topics: Elizabethtown's Cooca-Cola Museum; John Rice Irwin's Museum of Appalachia; Longaberger Basket Museum; the International Palace ...

Seller ID: 0545

Condition: Fine


The colorful cover of this attractive booklet is definitely an eye catcher and the condition is superb. At first glance it appears to be a travel guide, but is not. It's a sort of state of the union telling both residents and tourists all the many reasons to be glad they're there! Oddly, it has no date, but the last year quoted for research and statistics is 1936. Black and white photographs abound and are printed on coated paper. Covers all facets of county life. Measur...

A very big book for a very small town -- no page numbers, but it's 1/2" thick. Very nice and tightly bound with all faults external. The former owner stamped her name and address at upper corner of cover and there are some gray marks, both front and back, which looked like they should come right off the shiny surface with book cleaner, but did not. Many historical photographs and lots of text with advertising confined to back of book. One of the most complete centennial ... View more info
