The keepsake, 224-page, softbound book with 101 color photographs of objects whose stories are important to Portsmouth will be available in December 2022. A special pre-publication discount is offered to those who order the book in advance. Orders placed now receive $5 off the anticipated cover price of $29.99. 

As a memento of the 400th anniversary, this volume gives readers a sense of “who we are” and “where we are” as Portsmouth continues its journey from our past before 1623 to our future beyond 2023. Each object is depicted with a full-page photograph accompanied by an essay by a local author – 80 different writers who are the historians, experts, participants and observers of Portsmouth history best able to explain how each object’s story offers a path into our bigger 400+ year history.
