The Yellow Y
Robert F. Schulkers, Cincinnati OH 1926 - Blue cloth, white lettering on spine, white sketch of Seckatary Hawkins on cover within blind-stamped border, frontis. ill., viii, 311pp. Yellow dust jacket, black lettering & sketches on front panel, promo copy on back, ninth in list of titles above price on back flap. This is one of the signed Seckatary Hawkins Club Contest "prize copies" offered by The Pittsburgh Press to members of the Seckatary Hawkins Club, complete with the original contest promo leaflet affixed to the front pastedown, with the Scripps-Howard lighthouse logo, with heading: "To The One Who Wins This Book" and Seckatary Hawkins facsimile signature near sketch of himself at bottom. The Genuine SIGNATURE & Inscription "Yours, Fair and Square," is on the facing front free endpaper. Affixed to the front free endpaper below the inscription and signature is a bookplate From the Library of L--- P------ with illustration of Chas. Lindberg's airplane, "The Spirit of St. Louis." As Lindberg's historic flight from New York to Paris was achieved on May 20, 1927, presumeably the bookplate was affixed shortly after this book was awarded as a prize in the contest.
