    1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages.

    1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N. Lindsey, the representative from Franklin County, signed at the front as noted above, meaning that this notebook contains a total of 95 signatures of the Constitutional Convention Representatives. Many of the signatures are accompanied with handwritten salutations: "Your friend" "Yours respectfully" etc. In addition to the 95 Representatives, there are signatures of the Sergeant at Arms, Clerk, Door Keeper, Deputy, 5 Reporters, and the Minister of the Gospel. I have been able to fully identify all but 5 of the 95 Representatives through a combination of their signatures and the counties they identified themselves with. There is not, unfortunately, enough room here to list them all, but I have all the identified Representatives names along with counties represented, so if you are interested just email me. In addition to the signatures of 95 Representatives, this Sign-in / Signatory Book contains the signature of the Clerk (Secretary of the Convention), Sergeant at Arms, Door Keeper, five reporters, and that of the Minister of the Gospel. The second to last page, following a number of blank pages, has the names and addresses of several Lindsey family members, perhaps put there by Thomas N. Lindsey so that this book could be passed down from one family member to another as an important historic keepsake? GOOD CONDITION. Front cover missing, as noted above, some creasing and edge chipping to the first page, the rear inner hinge is split but holding well, otherwise the pages are solid, well bound, and all the signatures and writing is bright and clear. The 1850 Kentucky Constitution was extremely PRO SLAVERY. You can read about the 1850 Kentucky Constitution and the 1849 Kentucky Constitutional Convention on many sites on the Internet.

The paper will be sent folded, as was its normal state. About THE INDEPENDENT, NEW YORK (excerpted from Wikipedia): ******The Independent was a weekly newspaper

    published in New York City between 1848 and 1928. It was founded in order to promote Congregationalism and was also an important voice in support of abolitionism and women's suffrage. From its founding in 1848 until 1861 The Independent was edited by a team of three prominent Congregational ministers: Joseph Parrish Thompson, Richard Salter Storrs, and Leonard Bacon. It was published and financed by a group of New York businessmen led by Henry C. Bowen of the silk wholesaling firm Bowen & McNamee. The editorial policy was strongly antislavery, which hurt the magazine's circulation initially, but it improved through the 1850s to reach 35,000 by the beginning of the American Civil War. In 1861 HENRY WARD BEECHER, who had been a regular contributor to the magazine, became its editor. His assistant editor, Theodore Tilton, succeeded Beecher as editor in February 1863.******

There is a Sutro shelving label on the spine, Sutro and related library stamps and marks on the 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 originally 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 at SFSU 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's 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 spine cloth is covered with clear tape, the front and rear boards are rubbed, scraped, and worn through at the edges, nonetheless these original covers are still doing their job. Internally, the front and rear inner hinges have split but have been repaired / reinforced with white cloth tape (the Sutro library was known for trying to keep their volumes original and complete), there are ex Sutro and related library stamps and marks as noted above;

    SOMERVILLE CITY DIRECTORY FOR 1899. The Inhabitants, Institutions, Manufacturing Establishments. Published by W.A. Greenough & Co., Boston, Massachusetts, 1899. This is the Original, Vintage, Somerville, Massachusetts, City Directory published in 1899. Original hardcovers, printed cloth covered boards and spine, 6x9 inches, thick volume, 849 pages. The title page mentions a Map, but either a map was never bound into this edition or the map is lacking. To be clear, there is No Map, otherwise complete. Contains numerous advertisements of the day. These directories were published as advertising vehicles so ads are everywhere, including on the covers and page edges. This volume was part of the amazing SUTRO GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. There are Sutro Library ink stamps and associated library marks and stamps 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, 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. Only FAIR CONDITION: The covers are worn through at the corner tips and edges, are soiled and rubbed, sunned at the margins, and the printing has mostly faded at the spine. The binding is shaky, the inner hinge has split at the front and at a number of places throughout but is still holding with the sewn binding; there are Sutro Library stamps and marks, as noted above; there is some soiling, edge wear and small spots here and there; otherwise bright, and clean. A Vintage, Original SOMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS, City Directory from 1899. A treasure trove of Massachusetts genealogy. 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.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is thick and heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

    From the title to page to the Main Directory (pages 131 - 1014): "In the following section of this work the cities, villages and post offices of Iowa are arranged in alphabetical order, and a description given of each place, with an alphabetical list of all persons doing business therein or receiving mail at that post office."

    The Gazetteer also contains a brief history of the state, a listing of Iowa State government offices and officers, Yellow Pages, and lots of other information.

    A thick and quite comprehensive gazetteer and business directory.

    This volume was part of the amazing SUTRO GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. There is a Sutro Library bookplate on the front pastedown, and 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.

    GOOD CONDITION: The rebound hard covers are solid and doing their job well. Internally there are Sutro and associated labels, marks and stamps as noted above, there is a small remnant of paper on the title page, there are previous owner's marks by a number of names and businesses, and for some reason the "Dressmakers" on 4 pages of the business directory have been X'd out though the names can still be read, overall the inner pages are tight, bright, clean, clear and fully legible. A solid, nice, presentable copy.

    AN ORIGINAL 1918-1919 DIRECTORY of the Cities, Towns and Villages of the State of Iowa, and the Businesses and Business People in them. A hefty treasure trove of regional and genealogical information.
