Hell Fer Sartain, Fox, John Jr.
8 Fox, John Jr. Hell Fer Sartain
New York Harper & Brothers Publishers 1900 Second Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
This looks to be a presentation copy. Author wrote (some words not sure of transposition due to handwriting) "Rookwood, Dec 18, 1900, To The Wishers of Hell Fer Sartain- the same- from the friends of John Fox, Jr... Being sure, meanwhile that she will never know it in any worse form" Rookwood may refer to a famous hunting dog Kennel near Lexington, Kentucky. Book is reddish-brown with green and gold gilt design on front. Top and bottom edge of spine somewhat freyed. Pages uneven cut. Hell Fer Sartin is "Hell for Certain" in southern dialect. Fox wrote at times in this dialect as if "talking southern". Born near Paris, Kentucky, on December 16, 1862, John Fox Jr. was the son of a schoolmaster in Kentucky's Bourbon County. He enjoyed the benefits of quality education in childhood and attended Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, before graduating from Harvard in 1883. Fox then worked as a journalist in New York City before returning to Kentucky in 1885. He died of pneumonia on July 8, 1919, and is buried in Paris, Kentucky. Rare. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 119 pages; Signed by Author

Des Moines, IA Authors ca. 1965 PhotoCopy; First Impression Manila Folder or Binder Good with no dust jacket 
No date. Photo copy only. Ready for 3 ring binder. Fully Indexed. this is a comprehensive work starting with James Ellison, b. 1783 in Virginia (Now West Virginia). Other lines covered are Conaway, Maxwell, Gilet, Vanderpol, De hooges, jarrett, Milburn, See, Huffman. An Errata sheet discloses an error in the numbering sequence of pages. All of the page numbers are included but are not in sequential order starting after page 282. the data seems (not verified absolutely) to be correct by page number but the pages are not in order. Two missing pages (359, 364) are from the index section so having them missing is not critical to the data. This seems to be an original printing error and was not discovered until 1986. This is a rare work and provides the researcher with a lot of data on these family lines. We provide delivery tracking on US orders.; Photocopy Only; Photocopies of pictures; Folio; 365 pages;
