Description:
Inscription reads: G M Spears Georgetown KY March 20th 1886 In cars going home from Florida.
The title page is stamped with his name: George M. Spears.
Considering its age, the book is in great condition. I find the inscription fascinating because of the date and the mention of cars. I can only imaging what it must have been like to travel from Florida to Kentucky in one of the first cars. I also find it very interesting that he chose to document that moment in history in this book.
