Some time ago, I was contacted by a woman in Ireland that had come across an original copy of the book 250 Years of the Wadsworth Family in America. The book, she said, was part of an estate sale and she wondered if I would be interested in having it. I had recently purchased a soft cover reprint of the book which I had marked up extensively during my research. Of course I jumped at the chance to have an original copy, so I responded that I would be more than happy to pay her whatever she wanted for the book. She requested only that I pay postage, and would send me the book.
Several weeks later I received the prize that I had never considered actually owning myself. Although, at best, it is in good shape, the pages are clear and the book is intact. I’ve uploaded some photos of the book which is 9 1/2″ x 6 3/4″.
