141 pp, 9" H. B&w advertisements. Facsimile reprint of the 1874 edition published at the Brampton Progress and Chromatic Printing House. "This book is a compilation of Mr. John Lynch, Brampton, and contains the names of all persons on the assessment rolls for 1873, in the townships and villages in the County. It contains, besides, some exceedingly interesting historical notes of the early settlement of the district of which the present County of Peel was a portion. We read that Yonge street was surveyed in 1796, by Augustus Jones, and a number of extracts from his field-book discover that at that time the population was sparse in that beautiful route. Indeed it seems that in 1799 there were, in the Home District, only two hundred and twenty-four inhabitants. There are also a number of interesting exemplifications from the 'Court Book' of the County of York. We find parties fined for assault and battery during 1799 in amounts varying from 20 (Pounds) to 5 shillings. - On the 30th of December, 1815, Allan McNabb, Jr. had to apologize to the Bench for riding his horse on the foot path, and being pert and insolent to Wm. Chewitt. - The early settlement of the townships in the county is also briefly described." From 'The Globe' of the 6th of April, 1874. There is some blurring to portions of the text, mainly in the early pages but, except in a few cases, it remains legible. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear.
