Description: What this collection contains are similar studies In manuscript form, and bound at the moment in nine uniform blue loose-leaf covers written in ink. Occasionally, one or two hand drawn maps also included. Mr. Robertson has titled this study, VALID LAND TITLES, THEIR IMPACT UPON LONG ISLAND’S COLONIAL HISTORY, PLUS CURRENT CASE HISTORIES. Each volume is numbered numerically, one through 7, while the last two volumes are numbered 8A and 8B. Each volume contains anywhere from about 50 to 100 sheets with writing only on one side. The writing is all in ink and is essentially legible. Volume I bears the date, December 1983 at the lower end of the page, presumably Just about the time the volumes were written or compiled.
