Large book that would be cumbersome if in hardback. Heavy enough in paperback. Print is typewriter letters but clearly and solidly set on the page.
I took this volume to bed to read but laid it on the bed for support while reading.
It has a general history of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, a page of abbreviations, and a little history of each of the earliest four monthly meetings (Salem NJ, Burlington NJ, Philadelphia PA, Falls-Fallsington,Bucks Co. PA), their records, and where those records are kept.
There is a 135 page family name index with variations of spellings grouped together before all the page numbers are given.
Notice is made of any individuals within a family group entry of a different name.
I had great fun reading it cover to cover. 1126 pages including index.
