This early record recaptures the history and heroism that has always characterized the firefighters we rely on. Well known among fire enthusiasts and researchers, until now the book has been rare and expensive for a well-preserved copy. Providing a detailed look back, beginning in 1609, it is a fascinating chronicle of a time gone by. 650 engravings illustrate the city when its skyline was much less vertical. This book is referred to as "the firefighter's bible" by many curators and has been a favorite of fire buffs for the last 110 years.
