About this Item

A very nice and very early issue of The Harvard Illustrated Magazine -- only the second of the first volume to be published. Measures 7-1/2"x9-3/4" and is very clean and tightly bound. Faults are confined to a small bit of wear to tail of spine, a snipped corner at upper back. a crease and softening to lower back corner, and a bit of paper from the cover adhered to first page near gutter. Pristine cover and pages. Illustrated nicely with photographs and art including a full page color image of the American flag and two other works of art sporting a color wash. Main article topics include the statue of John Harvard, Harvard's Randall Hall, and the story of the U.S. auxilairy cruiser steamship Harvard 's harrowing trip while scouting for the Spanish Armada. Also includes student literature -- one play and several poems, as well as info on Harvard golf. Great ads from well-known concerns such as Brooks Brothers, Provident Life & Trust, and Perrier-Jouet champagne, but also businesses that slipped quietly into the annals of time. Hot items and services include "colored shirtings", pianoforte lessons, art to adorn student rooms, laundries. beer and wine, hats, carriages, jewelry, and tailoring. The most humorous is an ad for "Pillows -- Ballet pillows, foot-ball pillows, college pillows, fraternity pillows, and pillows to throw." 55 pages, plus the ads. Bookseller Inventory # 20054IN

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!
