A Selective Bibliography of Important Books Pamphlets and Broadsides Relating to Michigan History

Lunenburg, VT: The Steinhour Press, 1958. Limited First Edition. Hardcover. "This is a rarity among bibliographies: it can be read...not only does Mr. Greenly offer a careful description of each title, he goes on to identify the author, summarize the contents, comment on the printer or circumstances of publication, quote other scholars, and generally whet one's appetite for a copy. Such detail attests to his familiarity with the books he lists. Furthermore, it marks him as a bibliophile and collector, which he is."(from introduction by Howard H. Peckham, Director, William L. Clements Library, and University of Michigan) A beautiful volume with fine black-&-white reproductions of many of the rare documents catalogued, spanning over three centuries since 1604. One of 500 copies printed, not numbered, of which 450 were for sale. Of great interest to scholars of Michigan history, & bibliophiles in general.
