John Martin's Letters to You - No. 9 and 10
New York: John Martin's House 1910 and 1911. Two early Boy Scout--related letters from the Letters from John Martin series of subscription correspondence for boys. Octavos. Each 8pp. Stapled self-wrappers. Fine. Morgan Shepard, a contributor to St. Nicholas, began producing letters of illustrated tales for children in 1908 that he would personalize to each subscriber. Each letter was hand-personalized to subscribers and describes some fantastic journey or adventure involving explorers, hunters, knights, or animals, typically illustrated throughout. These issues, letters number nine (1910) and 10 (1911), are particularly notable because each is dedicated to the then nascent Boy Scouts of America with several drawings of Scouts in uniforms, their emblem, and the Boy Scout sign, as well as the Boy Scout Oath, ways to tie various types of knots, identify animal tracks, and with a facsimile copy of the letter sent to John Martin by Ernest Seton, the first Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts, in the founding year of the organization. OCLC locates no copies of this subscribers' letter series.
