About this Item

4to. (29 cm.) unpaged [212p.]. 52 separate issues bound in their custom portfolio which has stiff flexible green covers embossed and decorated with shields and a castle-like motif. The central cartouche shows a person with sword in hand set against a gilt sunray background. Also stamped in gilt on the front cover are the words Standard Oil Co. of California (which suggests this belonged to a Standard Oil salesman). Profusely illustrated with black and white photos and a few cartoons. Each issue has decorative borders and a decorative headpiece with a memorable saying about selling. Wear to extremities, top and bottom of spine starting to fray, all issues present and in very good to near fine condition, else very good and better. Each four-page issue came out weekly per "A Word in Passing" in the front matter: Illustrated Selling comprises fifty-two messages on salesmanship, addressed to the saleman in his quest for order. As you receive them each week you will recognize the characters and the situations discussed." Each number issued separately and collected in a portfolio with title page and introduction.
