Descripción

A remarkable scrapbook of Henry Baily of Newton Center Mass with many mementoes of his life and career. He was the son of Joseph Baily of Pennsylvania who was state treasurer in 1854 and a member of the 37th and 38th congresses (1861-1865) during the civil war. The scrapbook contains many appointment letters, invitations, dinner menus etc. pertaining to Baily¿s busy public and social activities. He seems to have been frequently appointed to various posts and invited to join lots of clubs. Rich in primary source ephemera of the period. Prominently mentioned are Harvard College and Haverford College (which Baily apparently went to). There are a number of handwritten letters of prominent 19th century scholars with news articles explaining the careers and achievements of the writers. Much on the social and civic activities of Newton Center Mass and several items related to family gatherings of the Baily-Bailey clan. Most activities are dated between the late 19th century and the 1890s. About 35pp. of content (with most items pasted in). The covers are separated but the interior contents are in fine condition. An informative, in-period and one-of-a-kind slice of American history. An excellent source of genealogical and local history detail not to be seen again. $1750. N° de ref. de la librería 000341
