That is really special! How nice that it stayed in your family.

My oldest is from 1830, A history of the state of New York, from the first discovery of the country to the present time: With a geographical account of the country and a View of its original inhabitants. And it was given to me as a gift by a Doper who came across it and knew I liked New York state history.
