32 Carhart, Edith Bebee A History of Bellingham (SIGNED)
Bellingham, WA Argonaut Press 1926 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Inscribed and Signed
This near fine copy is amazing, but you must be aware that a prior owner inked over the author's pencil inscription words and signature on the front free end paper. I can not find any record that the book had a dust jacket. Small, slight discoloration spot on front cover at middle. Some age toning on front paste down and front free end paper due to a piece of paper inserted long ago. The limitation statement notes that 500 copies were printed. This is the only bound copy we have seen on the market. Carhart was the first professional librarian in Whatcom County. She gathered stories from newspapers, compiled information from directories and studied local history books to compile this fascinating book..
