Book Id: 32415
262pp. Octavo [24 cm] Forest green paper covered boards with gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The spine ends are very gently bumped. The front board is just a tiny bit warped, so that it does not quite lay completely flat when it closed. There is a brief gift inscription on the rear free endsheet. In a very good dust jacket, with light rubbing.
From the Foreword- "I know of no early pioneer life history that exemplifies any faith, sacrifice, and service greater than the life history of Henry Ballard. Few men gave more for the Church than he did. From his humble birth and challenging early youth in Thatcham, England, Henry learned from loving parents the basic principle of hard work. He was encouraged by his parents to seek an education any way that he could."
