Special Collections doesn't have 1881 Hist of Stan Co.

I looked in the Special Collections room at the Modesto main library today. They have 6 copies of Tinkham's 1921 "Biographical and Pictorial History" of Stanislaus County but no copy of the 1881 edition you cite.

Modesto was founded in 1870. 1881 seems awfully early for the drummers from Chicago to come through a county soliciting for a B&P H of the county. I would suspect there were not enough rich people in the county to make it worthwhile.

If the book was a history of several counties, line Merced, Stanislaus and Tuolumne, they shelve it in a different place and I didn't look.

Here he is in 1880, courtesy of the Mormons
