Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Near Fine


Wraps, perfect-bound. 1st edition: Dec. 1978. All published (though labeled as Part I). Very slight shelf wear, virtually as issued. Former owner's small book plate mounted on upper contents page. 141 pp. Facsimile reproduction of the 1779 tax book (in long-hand, occasionally a bit difficult to decipher), arranged by township: Warminster, Warrington, New Britain, Hilltown, Warwick, Plumstead, Haycock, Rockhill, Richland, Nockamixon, Tinicum, Bedminster, Bristol. During production, several pages were inadvertently transposed; several errata slips have been mounted internally (original to issue). No. 4 of an edition limited to 200 copies "privately printed for controlled distribution by the current custodian of the original manuscript," thus quite scarce. Valuable genealogical resource pre-dating the first Federal Census for Bucks County by 11 years.
