        Yearbook of the Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) Angus Athletic Association (C.P.R.A.A.A.A.) 1912

      The Canadian Pacific Railway, Montreal, Quebec, 1912, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Good, First EditionSize: 4to - over 9?" - 12" tall, Approximately 268 pages. In 1904 the C.P.R. built its vast Angus Shops machine works at Montreal. In its prime, Angus Shops was North America's largest industrial complex, aside from the Baldwin Locomotive Shops of Philadelphia. In 1908 this facility was hit with a six month strike. The Angus Athletic Association was formed the next year, presumably to ease tensions. First 50 pages comprise the yearbook proper, providing a thorough overview of the Association with excellent photos of its many sports teams. The following 108 pages are made up of alternating pages of portraits of VIPs and wonderful contemporary advertisements by companies doing business with the C.P.R. The remaining 110 pages consist primarily of more advertisements interspersed with some lovely portraits of Canadian geographical features and buildings of note, such as the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C. The black boards are adorned with gilt lettering front and back. In fact, the back board is devoted to a C.P.R. advertisement entitled "Get Your Canadian Home From The Canadian Pacific", the text of which explains how the railway is offering agricultural lands along its lines from Manitoba through British Columbia, as well as 'town lots in all growing towns.' The wonderful advertisements in the book are too many to list but highlights include: an illustrated full-page by J.L. Skene Co. Contractors who proudly display a portrait of their recently completed Empress Hotel; a full page illustrated by the Calgary Brewing & Malting Col, Ltd.; a full-page by The Canadian Bridge Company with features a breath-taking black and white photograph of the magnificent Belly River Bridge under construction (this bridge is better known as either the Lethbridge Viaduct or the High Level Bridge at Lethbridge).Average wear. Short openings at front hinge, moreso at back hinge. Inkstamp of the W.A. Jameson Coffee Co. of Victoria, B.C., dated 1912, atop front free endpaper. Prior owner's name in tiny ink letters upon title page. No other markings. Pleasing condition for an item of this vintage. This rare and unique work will appeal to both serious students of C.P.R. history and those interested in the profusion of excellent contemporary advertisements from firms across the land.

        The Latter Day Saints: A Study of the Mormons in the Light of Economic Conditions

      London: Williams & Norgate. 1912. First. First edition. A worn copy -- right side of the front board lightened from dampening, chips and tears to the spine. Inscribed by both authors to Reginald Wright Kauffman's uncle Samuel Wright, a book reviewer and scholar: "To my very dearest uncle, and our dearest friend. Ruth Wright Kauffman" (and) "Sept. 1912. Moi aussi! Reginald Wright Kauffman." Upon Samuel Wright's death, the Kauffman's inherited his library, thus his books became their own copies. Kauffman was born and lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, although he also maintained homes in Switzerland and Bath, Maine. After graduating from Harvard in 1900, he wrote dozens of stories, mysteries, children's books, and non-fiction titles. He was the editor of the Bangor, Maine Daily News from 1941-1947. His novel The House of Bondage was widely praised, specifically by Emma Goldman, as the first serious attempt to explore the problem of women and prostitution. Very scarce. .
