Book Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1993. First edition. 9¼" x 6½"; lxxvii, 622 pp. Outlines the "best" royal descents from the most recent king of 500 immigrants to the American colonies or the United States from the 17th century to the present, who were notable themselves or left descendants notable in American history. Generally, the standard for notability is inclusion in the "Dictionary of American Biography." Broadly the immigrants comprise notable colonial public officials, proprietors, clergymen and soldier; notable 19th or 20th century figures (or their wives, parents, or grandparents); and colonial immigrants who have left sizable, often huge progenies. Blue buckram binding with titles and a large heraldic shield stamped in silver on the front board. Issued without a dust jacket. Barring some light soiling to the fore-edge, this is a fine copy.
