Item Description: [Ft. Leavenworth, KS ?] [ca. 1909]., 1909. 40pp. plus 13 leaves of plates from photographs (printed on rectos only). Small octavo. Staple-bound in pale blue-gray printed wrappers. Three pages of diagrams in text. A bit of sunning to wrapper edges, tiny closed tear at fore-edge of upper wrapper, slight chipping at crown and toe of spine, fore-corners of lower wrapper have soft creases, a couple of thread-like adhesion marks to title, otherwise a very good copy, internally about fine. The rarest of two forms of the first separate publication by the future General of the Army, published when he was a 1st Lt. in the Corps of Engineers. The text is noted on the title leaf as "Delivered : Mounted Service School, Fort Riley, Kansas, November. 1908 [/] Stafe [sic] College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, December, 1908 [/] School of the Line, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, January 1909." MacArthur had been posted to Fort Leavenworth in April of 1908, where he was given his first command, Company K, 3rd Engineer Battalion. He was promoted to Battalion Adjutant in 1909 and then Engineer Officer at Fort Leavenworth in 1910. Another more formal version of this work was published after its adoption for use in the Ft. Leavenworth service schools, paginated at only 34 pages. The probability that this is the earliest, and likely a preliminary form, is suggested by the unadorned wrappers (the other version bears notice of the adoption and the logo of the Corp of Engineers), a resetting and rearrangement of the title (and correction of 'Stafe' to 'Staff') in the other version, a revision of page breaks between the two versions, the inclusion of the three pages of drawings in the formal pagination in this version (pages 19, 20, and 21) and their exclusion from pagination in the other version (they fall between pages 16 and 17), among other features. The relative scarcity of this form (OCLC locates two copies of this version, at West Point and the Army Heritage Center) when compared to the other (15 copies, with wide dissemination among libraries) also weighs on the side of it being a preliminary printing.
