"It is well that this publication, "The Art Work of Washington County, Pennsylvania," should be preceded by an introduction explanatory of its subject and object. Its subject being the presentation of public buildings and residences and views of scenery here and there over the country, by means of engravings from photographic originals, its manifest object is to preserve for the future information as to present natural conditions as brought about by the life of man within the county for the last one hundred and forty years." Each photo is protected by a tissue guard. All nine volumes in near fine, portfolio in very good condition.
