Reprinted from Yourself Magazine, December 1944. First separate edition. Christmas keepsake from this popular motivational author of the Thirties and Forties. The author rhapsodizes on the glories of Free Enterprise, using as his objective correlative the Carnegie Steel Corporation and its long history of elevating "common labor" to the ranks of the middle class: "...they have come a long, long journey from the immigrant docks of Ellis Island. And the "light" in the valley which I see this Christmas Eve from the furnaces and converters of steel, more than any other factor, has made this rise to the dignity and independence of American citizenship possible. American industry gave them this glorious opportunity!..." A unique perspective on the vista of flaming mills along the Monongahela, which in most other accounts more closely… Read More

Description:
St. Paul: Minnesota Historical Company, 1902. First Edition. First printing. Thick octavo; publisher's deluxe binding of full gilt-tooled morocco; aeg; 340pp; chiefly illus. A fine copy in the publisher's binding. More than 2000 photographic portraits (halftones), printed four-to-a-page. A classic pay-to-play publishing venture, featuring likenesses of more than 2000 prominent Minnesotans of the period (all men), each of whom would have been offered, in exchange for submitting their portrait to the publisher, the opportunity to purchase their own copy (or copies) of the book at a special discounted rate. In a feat of hubristic editorial dereliction, the portraits are not even arranged in alphabetical order - meaning that subscribers, to confirm the wisdom of their investment, would have needed to thumb the pages hard and long before chancing upon their own portrait. A book well-suited to the vanity of its subjects - but this copy unusual for its immaculate state of preservation.
