The Genealogy of the Lamborn Family. With Extracts from History, Biographies, Anecdotes, Etc.

by LAMBORN, Samuel

Condition: See description

Philadelphia: M.L. Marion, 1894. Hardcover. Small 4to. Grey cloth with black lettering. 487pp, (16pp). Tissue-guarded frontispiece, numerous full-page plates, maps, floral endpapers. Very good. Mild edgewear only. A tight and nice first edition of this extremely detailed Lamborn (or Lambourne) family genealogy, which hails back to medieval England. Ownership signature on inner flyleaf of one of those descendants, one Sarah E. Salander of Taylorville, Illinois, whose family appear in this volume; tipped on facing leaf is an envelope addressed to her (postal cancellation notes Philadelphia but no date, though the stamp affixed is the 1892 one-center celebrating the 400th anniversary of Columbus's landing), and contained therein is a tiny and elaborate early Valentine's card and two identical heavy stock printed invitations to an 1893 family reunion "of the descendants of Joseph and Rachel Ash," also Lamborn descendants. Quite scarce, as are most family genealogies of this period, printed in small quantities for family distribution and jealously guarded.
