Windham's warm eight-line ink inscription on half-title page: "For Rhoda Coleman Ellison, to add to your | collection of Windham books, none of | which would ever had been written | without your guidance and encouragement - | With gratitude and love, | Kathryn | (Huntingdon College - Class of 1939) | July 2004." Interior pages are otherwise clean. Binding is firm. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. The book's inscribee, Dr. Rhoda C.

Ellison authored several Alabama-related books including an authoritative local history "Bibb County, Alabama: The First Hundred Years, 1818-1918." Windham was a student of Ellison's and apparently the two stayed close with the inscription implying a lasting mentorship. ISBN 1588381498. Seller Inventory # D17-6539

About this Item: Auburn, AL and Nashville, TN: published by the Senior Class of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute [API - Auburn University] and printed by Benson Printing Company, 1919., 1919. 262 pages. H 27cm x L 20cm. Black pebbled cloth over stiff paper covers; embossed gilt and green lettering on front cover faded, mild rubbing to covers with small stain to rear, some wear lengthwise along spine. Dark green endpapers. B/w photographs. Illustrations. 18 page advertising section at rear. 1919 Commencement Exercise program laid-in. Five sections for academic classes, military, college athletics, student organizations, and features. William Spratling's sophomore yearbook features eight signed drawings on pages 8, 21, 75, 87, 211, 216, 239 (a probable self-portrait), and 240. Drawings for advertisements on pages 241 and 242 might be Spratling's as well for they are stylistically similar to a signed advertisement drawing on page 240. Spratling is listed/photographed among the Sophomore Class Roll on page 85 (with uncaptioned photo on page 84 in which Spratling is indistinguishable), among the Company G privates on page 118 (with uncaptioned photo on page 119 in which Spratling is indistinguishable), among the Architectural Society member list on page 201 (with uncaptioned photo but with Spratling appearing in the top row), among a group of photographs of Wirt Literary Society members on page 213, and among the Auburn Press Club on page 223. Unlike his freshman yearbook, Spratling is not acknowledged for his artistic contibutions on the Glomerata Board page. Nor is Spratling cited as a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Sarah A. Spratling (possibly William's cousin) is mentioned on pages 92 and 206 with a photograph on page 94. Early API/Auburn yearbooks are quite uncommon. A very good+ copy.

Buckley, Paul Strobach, and George Turner, of the Republican State Executive Committee. It is dated August 1880.OCLC locates 11 copies under several accession numbers. Seller Inventory # 31118

The board of arbitration provided for by this treaty was composed of five members, appointed respectively, one each, by the President of the United States, the Queen of Great Britain, the King of Italy, the President of the Swiss Confederation, and the Emperor of Brazil.".
