About this Item

There were many items published to convince citizens to buy Second Liberty Bonds to finance WWI. I have one advertising piece here in color which is graphically appealing. The other three items are plain janes, but they're also the nuts and bolts that got the job done. First off we have a booklet titled "The Second Liberty Loan and the Causes of Our War with Germany" given as a speech by the Honorable W. G. McAdoo which was delivered at the annual convention of the American Bankers' Association in Atlantic City on September 20, 1917. McAdoo was Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of the Treasury and it was up to him to explain how the idea worked as a partial investment combined with taxes. The three billion dollar offer was open for only six weeks and was done by November 15, 1917. The booklet contains 16 seriously dense pages. In addition to that is a larger four page explanation of all the ins and outs for those who wanted in. It shows one small circular stain to last page. The third item is the application to invest. The application had once been pasted in a scrapbook, but I was able to remove the adhered paper leaving just a few small stains from the glue. The whole is not commonly found. (BUS.).

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!
