Chapman Publishing Co., Chicago 1901 - 1034 pp., gilt edges, biographical index, Arizona historical index, and Arizona county historical index, quality photographs. Now protected in a clear Mylar cover. This 115 year old book has been rebound also with new end papers. It is fully usable and complete. It's pages, however are fragile and show much use with tape repairs and chipping. That being said this volume has a real Arizona connection. It was the personal property of and comes from William Ohnesorgen (1849-1933). His name appears on the ffep along with Benson, Arizona 1909. In1879 this Arizona pioneer started and ran the stage line between Tucson and Tombstone. Another Arizonan, Roscoe L. Willson (1879-1976), a noted journalist, evidently acquired this book and used its photographs for his published stories. Some of the photographs have been removed and re-inserted (neatly taped back in) with Willson's annotations in the margins. This book is of value to the Arizona territorial researcher or historian, it contains excellent photographs of many of the pioneer "movers and shakers" of the Arizona Territory. The photographs of these Arizona pioneers, accompanying their biographical description, are stunning. Some examples of biographies are William M. Breakenridge, Charles Shibell, William "Bucky" O'Neill, Henry Clay Hooker, George W. Cheney, E.B. Gage and many more. The counties of Arizona are well represented with many of the pioneer biographies coming from Cochise County, many of the pioneers were there when Tombstone was booming! Please note this book weighs a little over nine pounds extra shipping charges may apply depending on the buyer's location. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
