Copy of Bernard H. Miller, with his signature and date on the front pastedown: "B.H. Miller / Aug 21st 1899". Bernard Miller has his portrait and biography printed on page 57. He is described as: "an energetic representative of the active business men of Quincy..."
Hardcovers, green cloth covered boards embossed with gilt titles on the front cover and spine, 8x11 inches, 136 pages.
Primarily biographical sketches with photographic portraits of the movers and shakers of Quincy Illinois in 1899. (Where are the female movers and shakers?)
GOOD condition, the covers have some wear at the spine ends and corners, and some rubbing; internally, the pages are lightly toned at the margins, have some age and smudge spots and a bit of soiling here and there, there is a small closed tear to the top edge of the first couple pages. Overall a solid, nice, presentable copy.
