Lynchburg's Pioneer Quakers and Their Meeting House 1754-1936
(A History of Lynchburg's earliest and most Romantic period -- a Story of those brave, quaint People, the Quakers)
by Douglas Summers Brown
J. M. Bell Company, 1936
Hardcover, 180 pages
Condition: Let's start with the dust jacket. It has some damage to the front upper right, perhaps a price tag was removed, it's visible in the photo. The spine has a brown discoloration. Edges and corners have small creases, bends, tiny tears. Moving inward, we come to the boards. Grey/green cloth with black type. There is light wear at the spine (top and bottom) and to the bottom edges from shelfwear. The textblock shows a fairly even browning at the edges. Inside: There is a dated inscription on the free front endpaper, apparently by the author. The author's signature is on the title page. The pages have age spotting, especially bad on those that are next to a plate (see photo of title page). A couple pages have dog-ears, and 20-30 have pencil marks or underlines. The spine isn't tight, the book will flop open to any of several spots, but there are no loose or missing pages and the hinges appear sound.
Some of the history of the Friends in the Lynchburg area, containing also brief descriptions of some of the member families such as Anthony, Moorman, Douglas, Terrell, Lynch, Clark. Includes lists of members, recorded deaths, marriages, disownments.
