History Of Philadelphia PD to 1887
This book was originally published in 1887. At this time it is the only history available of the early days of the department. The main benefit to this book is it contains a roster of the members of the department - so if you believe that you have an ancestor that was a member of the department during this period, you may get lucky and find some info on them. Unfortunately, this reprint edition is VERY POORLY DONE. It is filled with spelling errors, an unusable index, all photographs from the original edition were left out - in fact there are no illustrations at all. A disclaimer in the front of the book explains why this is the case, but for $48 I expect more. It is especially annoying that no mention of these problems were mentioned by the on line seller.
