While researching my husband's grandfather, Christian Wismer Ruth, I discovered this book for sale on eBay. The week we were bidding on this item was filled with excitement and anxiety that we might loss. There were shouts of joy when receiving the message I had indeed won the auction.
We were very happy to discover the book was a first edition, and in very good condition. Opening the book we realized how important this particular edition would be to the family. Inside there is a photograph of Christian along with an inscription! This book now has become on of our treasured family heirlooms.
