About this Item

8vo. Stiff glazed red, white and blue wrappers. vi, 139pp. Illustrations, charts, maps. Very good. Outer wrappers (only) somewhat rubbed. First edition, tight and nice, of "This important book," proclaims the front wrapper, which "reveals the weakness of Washington's Silver policy -- its importance to defense and domestic requirements -- the world wide shortage of this vital metal -- the Chaos in Coins!" The author signs this copy boldly on the title page, then inscribes it beneath: "To my long time friend / Thee Chapman. / Perhaps Scott Forsman / can use this as a text on / the silver crisis of 1964-1966 / once the author / learns how to spell. / Best luck / Hick." (Chapman was part-owner of the Chicago publishing firm of Scott, Foresman and Company.) Laid in is a 2pp 4to printed promotional text, an excerpt by Graham on letterhead of a Chicago investment company. Interesting association copy -- would have been quite a coup for a small specialist press to get the mammoth educational publisher to reprint or distribute their title. Bookseller Inventory # 23628
