New York: Macmillan Company, 1951. First edition. INSCRIBED, "To my friend Otto G. Lindberg from Herbert Hoover." Lindberg's great claim to fame is that in the 1930's as founder of General Drafting Co., a map-making business, he and his assistant, Ernest Alpers, added a totally fictitious place called "Agloe" to an out-of-the-way dirt road in New York state (to keep other companies from pirating their maps). "Agloe," which was an anagram of their combined initials, has subsequently appeared on maps for years -- and was only just removed from Google Maps in 2014. Fine in very good to near fine dust jacket with minor wear and chipping on the corners and spine ends.

THE WEB: The Authorized History of the American Protection League. Emerson Hough. THE WEB: The Authorized History of the American Protection League.
Chicago: Reilly & Lee Co. (1919). First edition. By a writer best known for his westerns.

Sad to say such thinking continues to this day. Very good in good or better dust jacket with internal repair to small chip at base of spine and long tear in rear panel.
