About this Item

Collectors of early New Thought will recognize this author, the founder of Success Magazine (1897). Marden also was closely allied with Elizabeth Towne's magazine Nautilus, for which he was a regular contributor. At first glance this topic seems off the beaten track until you turn the content page to the last section titled The Law of Kindness. The book is pretty and shows only minor exterior wear and a small stain to back corner near the spine, The book is tightly bound with 64 clean pages.It was given as a gift originally to "Helen Heffner From Papa." But later it came to belong to an attorney who wrote on the bottom of three pages and dated one of them 1905. One entry is a story, the other how good he feels when he follows the advice in the book. Here's an example of one page with his handwriting, "A few older members of the bar told me that in 1860 Douglass gave an address in Clyde. He spoke from an improvised platform in the street. There he mentioned the name of Lincoln who was his first contestant for the Presidency. A little boy cried out, 'Hurrah for Lincoln!' Douglass stopped in his speech and addressed the lad with, "that is right my boy if you are for Lincoln. He is a most excellent man.". Bookseller Inventory # 27548

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
