About this Item

I usually swerve away from items that aren't at least in good-plus condition, but this one is truly rare. It's completely intact and I have mended all tears with archival tape. I also cleaned it with a document pad throughout which improved it greatly, but there's not much that can be safely done about the stubborn soil and light stains. The good news is all text is readable, all pictures are accounted for AND someone conveniently jotted down the prices for each car. The booklet measures 4"x5-1/2" and has 22 pages. Stamped at back with name and addess of an Akron, Ohio dealer. Willy Durant, founder of the Durant Car Company, had previously been the founder of General Motors. He designed the Star to compete with Ford's Model T and Chrysler's Maxwell/Plymouth. Star Cars were made by Durant from 1922 to 1928. Bookseller Inventory # 27113

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!
