This volume was part of the amazing SUTRO GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. There are Sutro and related library ink stamps, labels, shelving numbers, and marks, on the front endpapers and here and there. The Sutro Library was (and to a large part still is) a treasure trove of genealogical books collected by Adolph Sutro and donated to the City of San Francisco. The collection was pretty much neglected by the City until in 2012 the City gave the collection to the library of San Francisco State University. Before and after the move to SFSU quite a few volumes from the Sutro genealogical library were, sadly, deaccessioned so that the collection would fit it into its new space. In its new home the Sutro Library is still considered to have the best genealogical collection west of Salt Lake City, and is now much better cared for, it is just not as large as it was. Once these wonderful deaccessioned Sutro genealogy books find new homes they will likely not be seen again for some time.

FAIR CONDITION: The covers are worn through at the corners and edges, the boards are rubbed, and there is a shelving label on the front cover; internally, there are Sutro and associated labels, marks and stamps as noted above, the front inner hinge is split but holding, otherwise the inner pages are lightly toned, otherwise tight, bright, clean, clear and fully legible. A solid, presentable copy.

A COMPLETE, ORIGINAL 1912 DIRECTORY of SUBURBAN VILLAGES surrounding NORWICH, CONNECTICUT. A treasure trove of genealogical information.

About the SUTRO LIBRARY (from where this book was deaccessioned):

******The Sutro Library holds the original collection of Adolph Sutro (1830-1898), California businessman and San Francisco mayor. The library has a large collection of publications and items dating from the 13th to the 21st centuries. It also has one of the largest genealogy collections in the U.S.

Adolph Sutro's heirs donated his collection to the California State Library in 1913 with the requirement that the collection stay within the city of San Francisco. After operating in various locations in the city for almost 100 years, the Sutro Library moved to a permanent home at San Francisco State University in 2012.******
