Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By C. Byatt on August 15, 2007
As someone (from the UK) researching into early Pennsylvania history and its English connections, the opportunity to gain access to primary historical data from the first 40 years of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is priceless. Some of this data may well be available online, but the concentration of names, dates and descriptors in this slim volume (3 pages short of 300) - tied in with a comprehensive index - provides a rich vein to mine. The wills, in chronological order from Thomas Fream's in Sep 1682 to Thomas Sharp's in Feb 1723, all have the salient factual details (dates, names, descriptions, and places), although as it says on the can, these are abstracts - it is a reference book, not a bed-time reading book!
The paperback has plasticized covers, so although light, is a little more durable than simple paper covers. It arrived in the UK safely and in good time.
