Hotel Register for The Uplands
Bethlehem, NH, 1896. Nice turn-of-the-century guest register for one of the Grand Hotels of the White Mountains. The Uplands was built by the hotel magnate, Frank H. Abbott, in 1880. Entries are from June, 1896 to October, 1897. I haven't checked signatures but there could well be some important politicians, business tycoons, actors, inventors, sports figures, or other celebrities as many summered in the mountains to beat city heat, polution, and allergens. The register ("Manufactured by The Maynard-Gouge Co., . . . Worcester, Mass.') alternates advertising pages with pre-printed registration forms. A 24-page "American Hotel Guide" published for the Hotel Register Publishers Association by the James T. Hair Company of Chicago preceeds the registration pages. Sound binding. Clean pages. Some of the advertising pages have inkspots (they served as blotters for the registration pages) and edge wear. The cover shows some wear, heaviest at the spine ends. The gilt lettering and ruling is in nice shape.. Half Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.
