Ohio Archaeological and Historical Society Publications Vol. IV
1 Ohio Archaeological and Historical Society Publications Vol. IV
Columbus, Ohio Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society 1895 Hard Cover Very Good No DJ, as Issued 
Very nice, book, tightly bound with only a small bit of external wear to boards. Light foxing to endpapers, otherwise clean pages. NOT an ex-lib. Very crisp, untorn fold-out map of Fort Ancient at frontis. The preceding edition, Volume III, was published in 1892, but this publication took three years due to the state's involvement with the World's Fair Columbian Exposition. It's quite a good one, as it contains lengthy articles on the Ohio Company and the Scioto Purchase, the border dispute between Ohio and Michigan, an early abolitionist colony and its founder, the Underground Railroad and Rutherford B. Hayes. Illustrated with black and white plates. Numerous other volumes from the Society available
