The Compendius of American Genealogy, The Standard Genealogical Encyclopedia
of the First Families of America, Volume V, ed. Frederick Adams Virkus,
1933.

This almost 72 year old book is in near perfect condition; there are only a
couple of barely visible small spots on the right hand side of the closed
pages to mar its newlike appearance. 7-1/2x10, 943 pages, the book includes
crests, portraits, and the thousands of wonderful lineages.

Contents include:

Preface
Acknowledgments
Index to Illustrations
Explanation and Analysis of Lineage Records
Abbreviations
Lineage Records
Immigrant Ancestors (Biographies)
Alphabetical Index of Names in Volume IV
The Institute of American Genealogy

With multiple lineages in each insertion, many are carried down ten
generations or more.

A book like this in this condition just comes along once in the proverbial
"Blue Moon"!

$165 media mail postage paid, insured, with delivery confirmation.
