Title: Emerson Hough: President White Paper Club.
Publisher: N.p. [probably White Paper Club], Chicago
Publication Date: 1923
Small 4to. Stiff wrappers. 3pp. Very good. Slightest of soiling -- overall tight and attractive. Eulogy by Stone (who was apparently affiliated with the Marshall Field store in Chicago); he signs at the conclusion. Hough (1857-1923) was a journalist and rabid conservationist who authored popular novels such as "Singing Mouse Stories" (1895), "Mississippi Bubble" (1902) and "The Covered Wagon" (1922). He served as president of the White Paper Club -- presumably a private Chicago literary association -- and Stone's is a refreshingly simple, original and sincere expression. Tipped to the front wrapper, below the decorative leaf device that encircles the title, is a handsome large-margined signature of Hough (clipped from a letter, as "Yours sincerely" is typed above it). The limitation of this pamphet is unknown, but likely quite small as it would have been produced strictly for circulation among club members. Bookseller Inventory # 13405
