The history of Newport from 1639 to 1800

Unpublished manuscript on the history of Newport

The history of Newport from 1639 to 1800

N.p., n.d. [New York?]: ca. 1885.]. 4to, 247-page unpublished manuscript in a neat and legible hand, pages ruled in red; bound in quarter black calf over black cloth, "Newport" in gilt on the upper cover; spine quite rubbed and flakey, but the binding remains sound. Yarrington's (1862-1934) name does not appear in Parks. OCLC credits him with England's Commercial Restraints on the American Colonies, 1651-1763, apparently a doctoral thesis at Cornell from whence he graduated in 1892. He received his Masters from Columbia in 1902. This history may have been done in connection with his studies at Columbia as an old pencil note on the front pastedown reads: "Thesis." For many years he was a teacher of history at the Manual Training High School, Seventh Avenue and Fourth Street, Brooklyn. Item #56668
