This book is incredible. Being that I'm from Michigan and live in Michigan, I tend to gravitate toward historical "things" from Michigan's past.
This book was published in Lansing, MI in 1888 by Thorp & Godfrey, State Printers and Binders. The title page is magnificent, it depicts the state seal of Michigan and shows the publisher. The book isn't in too bad of shape, probably not in good enough condition for a serious book collector, which I am not.
On the inside cover there is an inscription that reads "From the State of Michigan, To Grange No. 545 T'w'p of Ashland, County of Newaygo, This book must be kept in the regularly maintained district school library or it shall be forfeited to the State."
