Author: Perrin, Battle, Kniffin (also see Genealogy/Books/Kentucky/Battle 1885 - one of the earlier volumes of this set)

Year: 1888

Title: Kentucky: A History of the State

This is part of a series of nine volumes published in the 1880s, each volume being termed an edition. Each of the original volumes contained a general history of Kentucky followed by biographical sketches. The biographies are different in each volume and represent certain counties, which were not necessarily named in the volume. There are two 'Eighth Editions' which contain different biographies but the title page and contents of the volumes do not make a difference between them. The biographical sketches were reprinted in 1979 with new indexes, each in a volume bearing the original edition number
