2 Collins, E. S. Ohio Facts
1989 Softcover Very Good 
There are no obvious defects -- a hint of tanning a edges of boards. ; This book is a keepsake from the MBS (Miniature Book Society) Conclave VII. Internet research yielded the information that this meeting was held in September, 1989 at a Marriott in Cincinnati, Ohio (the book is not explcitly dated). Illustrations are hand colored. While I cannot make out the first name on the handwritten signature, my best guess is that it is Evron S. Collins -- a noted Ohio miniature book collector (if anyone knows if this is incorrect, please contact me). The book points out that Ohio is the place the MBS began. ; Color Illustrations; Miniature Less than 3" tall; 8 pages
