7 Gaddis, Edgar T.; Tallmadge, T.W. Manuals Military Pensions 1899 (2 booklets)
Unknown Location Unknown publisher 1899 soft cover 
Here are two booklets published in 1899 by two different attorneys, Edgar T. Gaddis and T.W. Tallmadge, each offering veterans information on pensions and bounties. The brown one is the Gaddis -- the other is missing its cover, hence has no title, but is clean and intact and was written by T.W. Tallmadge. The Gaddis booklet is 20 pages long and measures 3-3/4' x 5-3/4". I repaired the spine and one spot inside the front cover with archival tape which is almost invisible and does not darken. Gaddis hit on these topics: The Old Law Granting Pensions, The Disability-Dependent Law, and The Increase of Pensions Under Act June 27, 1890 and Re-issue. Veterans involved served in the Mexican War, the Indian Wars from 1832-1842, the War of 1812, and the Spanish War. The Tallmadge booklet covers Army Nurses, the new bounty law, a disability chart to show what injuries were worth, and lots of testimonials from happy vets who used Tallmadge's services. 40 pages for this one,

11 Reed, Thomas B. Reed's Parliamentary Rules With Suggestions For Special Rules (1900)
Chicago Rand McNally 1900 Later printing Hard cover Very good 
Very nice, clean, pocket sized book which was initially published in 1894, then again in 1898 and here in 1900. The condition is quite good and the book is small at 4"x 6" with very clean bright end papers and pages. The exterior shows a little rubbing to the cloth at the top and bottom of the spine, but no loss of fabric. There are 19 chapters in 229 pages. There was also a tiny tear to top edge at the very back of the book, all of which were repaired by me with tiny pieces of almost invisible and non-browning archival tape. I also just noticed a clean snip to the corner of the last blank page, but, fortunately, the back end paper was not involved. The author was Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Los Angeles, California W.E.B. Du Bois Club 1965 Card cover Very Good 
This small plain Jane booklet could easily be passed by. I almost did it myself until I remembered that the title "The Fire This Time" was the name of an important book by James Baldwin. W.E. B. du Bois was also many things -- an educator, an orator, a write, and a Civil Rights activist. The booklet measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 14 pages. It's not commonly found, but is an important look at the looting and burning in L.A. in the 60's. The text covers why the eruption happened; a guide to race relations for police officers; solutions from the white power structure; solutions from some who want the problem solved. The booklet is tightly bound and clean with just a tiny spot up in the front corner of the cover, mild sunning to the spine and a name writren on the back of the fot cover/.
