Sir Thomas Phillipps

The number of ancestors which every person must have in each generation as far as the 50th

Published: [ Middle Hill: Middle Hill Press; 1850s? ]


Single sheet measuring approximately 20 x 8cm. Printed on one side with the number of ancestors for each generation. At the 50th generation everyone will have 1,135,899,906,842,624 ancestors! One of the many strange productions of the Middle Hill Press.

Holzenberg 504 who dates it to 185-? but one copy seen is on paper watermarked 1824, so it could be rather earlier, or just a case of the printer using up a few sheets of old paper.
