About this Item

The Vermont Country Store, an old-fashioned general store with a large mail-order catalogue operation, was founded in 1946 by this Vermonter and his wife in homage to his family's beloved old country store; before this he was a literary fellow -- New York editor and author, founder of a magazine for book collectors (The Colophon) and of Stephen Daye Press; his books include "Dreiserana," "Vermont Afternoons with Robert Frost," "And So Goes Vermont" and others. TNS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Weston, VT, 1957 November 15. Near fine. Addressed to Arnold Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). On pictorial "Vermont Country Store" letterhead ("Village of Weston Republic of Vermont"), Orton -- apparently a Civil War buff -- thanks this officer of the New York Civil War Round Table "for sending me. all the information about the Civil War Round Table." Bold small signature in black ink. A fun piece from this early mail order magnate. Bookseller Inventory # 37838
