Dictionary of American Biography Supplement Six 1956 1960, John A Garraty editor 1980
Dictionary of American Biography Supplement Six 1956-1960, edited by John A. Garraty in 1980, includes 524 biographies and an index to all names in the existing six supplements. Essays include the necessary personal information but are expressed with the wit and literary dexterity to make them interesting as well as informative.
The red hardcover book is in good vintage condition with normal age related browning and with no marks or tears. There is a binding issue for about four inches up from the bottom between pages 22 and 23. The spine is faded, but there is little to no shelf wear, and the book, except for the one issue, is in fine and firm shape. It has had very little use - except for the one obvious accident.
The book is 7" x 10 1/4" x 1 3/4" and has 769 pages. It weighs three and a half pounds, a very solid book, in content and to lift.
