About this Item

No date of publication, though circa 1910; Eight page pamphlet bound in original paper wrap covers, and later bound into a cardboard library binding; Author's inscription at top of original cover reads in full "Complements to Prof. Dunlap [Charles Graham Dunlap] / O. E. Learnard"; Library covers show the book plate of Professor Dunlap and two penciled library notations; There are no other library markings; Though showing light smudges, pamphlet remains in very nice condition and authors inscription is bold and clear; Learnard (1832-1911) founded the town of Burlington, was a district judge, and a lieutenant colonel of the First Kansas Infantry. He was a member of the territorial legislature and one of the first state senators. He chaired the Osawatomie Convention and helped found the Kansas Republican party, of which he was the first chair. He purchased both the Lawrence Daily Journal and the Lawrence Daily Tribune to consolidate under the name "The Lawrence Journal" which he edited until shortly before his death; This very scarce pamphlet disputes much of the popular and historically accepted lore of John Brown's time in Kansas.

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
