About this Item

This item was created by the St. Regis Paper Company as a Bicentennial keepsake. The previous owner kept it beautifully -- everything is bright and crisp. The first photo shows the wooden clamshell box covered with a linen-like fabric. Inside are nine booklets -- one of which bears the name on the box cover, plus these: Ben Franklin and the Colonial Printing Industry; Propaganda for the American Revolution; William Penn and American Cities; Equal Rights and Democracy; Medicine in America; Selling the West; Newspapers and Public Opinion; the Growth Business; and Magazine Journalism and the American Lifestyle. Also included is a fold-out titled The Common Press; A Brief History Description & Instructions for Operation of the Original Printer, plus the print which is rolled and tied with a red ribbon, a color print titled the Unhappy Sufferers, whcih was sold by Paul Revere. At the bottom of the box there even more items -- a letter from William Penn; a large color folded map of California's Cold Regions, two handbills, a tri-fold about advertising and merchandising in the early days of mass distribution , and a fold-out poster advertising Henry & Johnson Linament. Altogether a lovely thing. Very giftable. Bookseller Inventory # 27634

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!
