Alcune remote memorie storico-araldico-genealogiche di un cognome: Peirce.
By Guglielmo Peirce
Price: Free! Words: 40,580. Language: Italian. Published: August 12, 2010. Category: Nonfiction » Biography » Historical biography
Il risultato di alcuni mesi di navigazione in Internet alla ricerca delle più antiche memorie delle principali famiglie inglesi dal cognome Peirce. 'Editing' non frequente. L'autore ne ha ultimamente iniziato una traduzione in lingua inglese, ma, a motivo sia del poco tempo a sua disposizione sia dell'intricato intrecciarsi delle vicende narrate, non confida purtroppo di terminarla in tempi brevi.
