By: Clark, Murtie June

Price: $250.00

Quantity: 1 available

Taken "almost entirely from military records located in the archives of the United States, Canada, and Great Britain," Clark presents in Volume I "Official Rolls of Loyalists Recruited from North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana," in Volume II the same for Loyalists recruited from "Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Those Recruited from Other Colonies for the British Legion, Guides and Pioneers, Loyal Foresters, and Queen's Rangers," and in Volume III the rolls of recruits from "the Middle Atlantic Colonies, with Lists of Refugees from Other Colonies," and much else. These books are from a private library, and were on permanent loan by the owner to a local library's historical collection (the owner subsequently had a change of heart, and withdrew them in favour of private sale). The only indications of their library residence are small stickers pasted to the front pastedowns in all three volumes, and neatly written cataloguing information on the copyright pages (see scan for sample of the latter). All three volumes in red cloth w/gilt lettering/design to front covers, gilt lettering/rule to spines. Volume I: 635 pages, including appendices, index. Light wear to corners/spine ends, light scuffing to cloth, minor smudging to edges. Volume II: 687 pages, including index. Moderate wear to corners/spine ends, lightly scuffed cloth, stained edges (looks like someone spilled a coffee or a Coke nearby -- nothing serious, but certainly noticeable). Volume III: 484 pages, including index. Moderate wear to corners/spine ends, scuffed cloth. An uncommon set of more than passing interest to genealogists and scholars of the period. Since these weigh more than the average book, additional postage will be required. If you'd like to know precisely how much more before you order (and why wouldn't you?), send me your mailing address, and I'll cypher up a total for you. (C/WH)
