[Quaker/Maryland Interest] Eight Volumes



This is an interesting group of books I bought at an estate auction in Cecil County, MD ten or fifteen years ago.  Each bears a small pasted label inside the front cover identifying them as once belonging to the "Library of Nottingham, Preparative Meeting of Friends", located in present-day Rising Sun, Maryland.  Left to right according to first photo:
