SOME COUSINS OF THE GREAT WAR, April 3rd, 1917 - November 11th, 1918. Compiled by EVA TURNER CLARK. Self-Published, Self-Bound, New York, 1920. Printed on fine rag paper with deckled edges, watermarked "Berkshire Text", paper produced by the American Writing Paper Co., of Holyoke, Massachusetts (founded in 1899). Wrappers / softcovers, brown paper covers printed with a title on the front cover. There are 32 leaves (sheets) of 8" x 11" paper, 2-hole punched at the left margin, bound with a single staple in middle of the left edge and with a cord through the two holes that binds the inner pages to the plain brown card covers. Inner pages consist of a Title Page, a Foreword by Eva Turner Clark, an Appendix, and 12 pages with a tipped-on photographic plate facing 12 pages of a biographical description of the soldier being pictured (i.e. there are TWELVE "Cousins of the Great War", each with a tipped-on photo on one page with their description on the facing page). The backsides of most pages are blank, and a number of leaves are entirely blank. The cousins, all related to the author Eva Turner Clark, are: Randolph William Apperson, Austin William Clark, Edward Hardy Clark, Henry Burrow Clark, Morris Richard Clark, Joseph Marshall Flint, Richard Clark Kroeger, Randolph Clark Mayfield, Howard Gray Park, Paul Everton Peabody, John Thomas Whitmire, and Anvil Clark Williams. Condition: Covers are chipped especially at their top edges, worn along all the edges and peeling at the spine ends, nonetheless they are present, original, and still bound well to the inner pages. Internally, one sheet has a 1" closed edge tear, otherwise all the leaves are very good, bright, clean and unmarked. All the tipped-in photographic plates are bright and clear. An attractive, original, complete copy. This ORIGINAL 1820 SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK / DOCUMENT is SCARCE.
