Their Hopes

Our Heritage

After Edam’s 100th Anniversary celebration in 2012 – all remaining copies of this book sold out. The former publisher advised that the print plates were never saved. The 5.25”computer discs on which the book was created have since vanished.

In February of 2016, Denis LaClare undertook to dissemble and scan his copy of the 1,200 page book to searchable pdf digital file format.

Thus we are pleased to advise that digital copies of the book are now available at a cost of $20 each.
