Price: $725.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: VG+

Near complete set of the Papers Read Before the Lebanon County Historical Society, aka Lebanon County Historical Society Journal, inaugurated in 1898 and still being published. Issued somewhat irregularly, this publication typically appeared in booklet form, in wraps of various colors (light green, brown, tan, royal blue, and others), later perfect-bound with illustrated wraps. This run is virtually complete (see specifics below), with most of the missing issues probably available directly from the Lebanon County Historical Society. Average condition is solid VG+, with several issues showing loose covers or chipped spines, many if most issues showing only light shelf wear, solid Near Fine, some showing price stickers at top front cover corners (indicating that they had been purchased from LCHS); all are individually sleeved in archival bags and boards for protection. Vol. I: 1, 3-18 (of 18); II: 1-14 complete; III: 1-13 complete; IV: 1-13 complete; V: 1-9 complete; VI: 1-17 complete; VII: 1-12 complete; VIII: 1-14 complete; IX: 1-11 complete; X: 1-10 complete; XI: 1-6 complete; XII: 1-3C complete (5 issues total); XIII: 1-8 complete; XIV: 1-5 (of 7); XV: 1-3, 5 (of 5); XVI: 1-4 complete; XVII: 1-5 (of 6); XVIII (18): 2, 4 (of 6); XIX (19): 1, 3 (of 4). Thus, of the total 182 issues comprising Vols. 1-19, this run contains 172 of them, lacking only one issue (Vol. I, No. 2) in the scarcer early volumes. Each issue ranges from 20-24 pp. to more than 100 pp. in several instances, covering a wide range of historical interests: church history, railroads, breweries and taverns, long rifles, genealogy, town and village histories, Millbach, the Pennsylvania German dialect, food lore, etc. Due to the frequency of publication through the early decades, this title is among the most difficult PA county publications to complete.
