Smithtown Long Island New York: Author Published, 1981. viii + 150 pages; index; signed by the author on the 1/2 title page (with) a friendly, chatty typewritten letter with good content from the author Harriet G. Valentine laid-in, thanking Bette (Weidman) for a copy of her book "Nassau County - Long Island" and pleasurable identifying one of the illustrations in Cold Spring Harbor used in that book- H. Valentine is especially appreciative of the work the authors of "Nassau County" did in saving much imagery of historical interest; Harriet Valentine states in the Preface to her book on Helen Rogers, "...Helen's diary has become the main vehicle for enlarging and embellishing the history of the one-time small whaling port of Cold Spring during the 1840s and '50s - the most active period of its development..."; illustrations in black and white; bound in illustrated paper wraps binding; some light wear; in very good condition, good Cold Spring Harbor, whaling history & Long Island local history, especially nice for the authorial associations.
