This volume was part of the amazing SUTRO GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. There are Sutro and related library stamps, marks and numbers on the front endpapers, title page, and here and there throughout. 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 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 the collection would fit 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 cornet tips, frayed at the spine ends, and soiled, but remain solid with clear printing. Internally, there are Sutro and related library stamps and marks as noted above; the title page is significantly damaged but present, it has tears, creases, and tape repair; the first three leaves (pages of ads) are soiled and have some edge creases; the table of contents page is creased and has edgewear; otherwise the pages are just lightly used, tight, bright, clean and clear. A solid copy.
A COMPLETE, ORIGINAL 1933 GENERAL DIRECTORY for the CITY of PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND, and BUSINESS DIRECTORY for the STATE of RHODE ISLAND. A treasure trove of R.I. genealogy.
