My Great-Grandfather Holliday Ellwood Hartman

When my great-grandfather Holliday Ellwood Hartman (my mom's mom's dad) died in 1960, his library was boxed up and moved to my grandparents' attic. It remained there, probably untouched, until a month ago.

Now twelve boxes of H. E. Hartman's books are sitting behind my parents' couch. I'm going through them, book by book, to discover more about my great-grandfather.

If you are interested in any of my posts - or if can share information about book collecting, book restoration, book selling, book publishing at the turn of the century, or the Hartman family tree - please comment or e-mail me.
