By Peck, Bradford

Lewiston, Maine & Boston: Bradford Peck, 1900. Hardcover. xv, 311p., frontispiece (folded as issued), other illustrations include a second folded one and a doublespread. First edition in dark green cloth boards titled and decorated in silver-foil, in dust jacket. A near-fine copy. The jacket however is acidic, quite toned and fragile with large chips from head and tail (through which our new archival-grade brodart shows bright-white areas) and a few more small chips along edges. Dj verso was strengthened long ago with short strips of clear tape, these not at all pulled or wrinkled but doubtless weak. Ffep bears a previous owner's stamp (one Barbara K. Peck); all in all item is in very good condition. *Sargent. Wright III 4138, Egbert, pp. 302, 466-7. "Describes a businessman's utopia based on efficient distribution by co-op department stores -- a 'practical' application of Christianity. Peck actually tried this experiment." *Kenneth M.Roemer, The obsolete necessity, p. 208.
