About this Item

Very scarce booklet measuring 6"x9", tightly bound and clean. Faults include light crease at bottom front corner, light soiling to beige card cover, light dampstain in outer margin of first 18 pages but not affecting text or photographs, and a discreet stamp to front which reads "Century Library January 6, 1931." Book was compiled by a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a Fellow of the American Public Health Assocation at the bequest of the Committee of Twenty which was comprised of physicians disgruntled over street conditions and the public health, among whom was Edward Henry Lewinski Corwin, a Polish activist, author, and physician who worked in the public health sector. Eleanor Roosevelt served on its advisory committee. The author studied European methods by touring Germany, Italy and Zurich to compile the report which consists of 39 pages with twelve black and white photographs, some showing the latest in street cleaning machinery.

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!
