MacArthur The Real Story (1951), Burns, Martin
122 Burns, Martin MacArthur The Real Story (1951)
New York Universal Publishing 1951 soft cover Good-plus 
Given the acidity of the paper used to print this booklet it is in very good condition save browning to pages. Every copy of this I've ever seen has had the same outcome. This one is clean and tightly bound, however, with no names or writing. Though a bit sensational in tone, it's an interesting read which covers the drama in Washington, America's verdict, whether or not MacArthur deliberately sought dismissal, the women in his life, his role as Caesar of the East, and speculation on what comes next. It also provides info on why he was dismissed, the effects of it on war and peace, behind the scenes maneuvering, and the march on Washington. Many black and white photographs.

Sylvania, Ohio The Sentinel Publishing Company 1933 Card cover Very good 
This is a really scarce booklet and in clean, tightly bound condition with no foxing and just a penciled name on the back of the front cover.

The booklet combines a program for the centennial festivities followed by a history of Sylvania, a town which is close to Toledo, Ohio. It also covers the war with Michigan over boundaries. The booklet measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" and has several photographs in black and white, plus ads from the Toledo area to help offset the cost. Nice one for the collection!

The Story of Hurricane Cleo (1964), Compiled By Globe News Company
135 Compiled By Globe News Company The Story of Hurricane Cleo (1964)
Fort Lauderdale, Florida Globe News Company 1964 soft cover Very good 
Oversized booklet measuring 11" by 9" and featuring 58 pages lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs of the disaster. Clean as a whistle inside and out with one tiny tear to outer edge of front cover and a bit of stubborn soil to upper right corner. Includes significant text, as well as a very nice fold-out map which outlines the storm's path. Cleo blasted Key Biscayne and roared along the Florida coast via State Rte. 7 with winds gusting to 110 miles per hour. The devastation was enormous and included Storyland, a popular children's theme park of the day which was never rebuilt. The storm also marks the only time in its history that the Fort Lauderdale News (the precursor of the Sun-Sentinel) failed to publish. The power was out so long that pressmen were unable to melt the lead for the linotype machines. Employees and their finished, but unpublished, copy were forced to spend the night in the newspaper office sleeping on desk tops. Photos are wonderful -- among them are a lone mannequin standing in the window of a blown-out building with an amazed fireman gazing in, a desolate street strewn with women's shoes, and two forlorn men sitting outside a a Shell station which had, appropriately enough, lost it's S. Text is very well written and includes much detail. An interesting piece of Florida history.

Detroit, Michigan Harlo 1976 soft cover Fine 1 
Crisp, clean booklet without defect and a bit hard to find. Tells the story of the entrepenurial Reed family who came to Mansfield, Ohio in a booming Civil War economy and set up shop. They were still thriving when the booklet was written in 1976. What I love is that they were in the BOOK business (but also sold wallpaper and furniture) and excelled at it. Their numbers are nothing short of extraordinary -- in 1868 sales totaled $92,724.64!!!!! Eventually they moved into stationery, perfume, corsets, silk and other fashion accessories as -well. Booklet measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2", is illustrated with historic photographs, and has 48 pages.

Solon, Ohio Eagle Creek Press 2006 0975936611 / 9780975936610 Presumed First Card cover Very good condition 
Very nice clean booklet of 81 pages which measure 7" x 10" and are illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. The text begins with the return of the doughboys from WWI; Newton D. Baker's Baby (the college);Crisis; Postwar Renaissance; Confusion; More Crisis; the Lecture Series and more. The best part to me is the history of the annual Case book sale. I have been going to it for 20 years and many items both on this site and my book site came from the huge Case sale. I only missed the opening day once and that because I tore my rotor cuff the day before, but I was there on half price day with one arm in a sling and a husband who piled books, packed books, checked out books and hauled boxes of books to the car! book has no names or writing and is clean and tightly bound.
