Later black buckram. Thick quarto. 621pp. Illustrated. Foldout color map by Donald G. Mitchell. First edition. The author leads a tour of the old town of Norwich, Connecticut, giving the history of each houselot in the village, including information on the families that lived in each of the houses, from the settlement of the town in 1659 to the nineteenth century. This is supplemented by genealogies of the major families. In the first four introductory paragraphs, the author describes the settlement of the town, and sets forth her version of a list of the original 34 settlers. She then organizes the bulk of the volume as a walking tour of the village, moving from one houselot (or cellar hole) to another. At each stop along the way, she identifies the earliest inhabitant of that lot, frequently someone from the original list of 34. Then, where possible, she follows the ownership of the house and the lot for a century and a half. These house histories also include large amounts of the genealogy of the families who resided there. The last third of the volume comprises a set of genealogical outlines of many of the families of Norwich. As a result, the reader is provided with a different perspective on these families, permitting comparison of the growth and interconnections of the families with the changing of hands of the houselots. Interspersed throughout the volume are photographs of the houses described, many of them no longer in existence. There are also maps and diagrams showing the layout of the village at different times. A very good copy in an attractive cloth binding with minor wear. The text is in very nice condition having been well-protected by the binding. The title page is torn across the bottom and has been repaired with old Scotch tape. A few pages near the end of the book are lightly stained in the lower corner. The scarce color map is in very nice shape with some light browning and edgewear. Postage extra. N° de ref. de la librería 6326
