A propos de cet article

This is a fine, as new, hardcover first edition, first printing copy in a fine, as new, mylar protected DJ, white spine. Inscribed by Burke on the dedication page. This is a like new copy, but the best part is the laid in folder entitled: The Elliott Springs Touch which contains 3 color copies of the famous A Buck Well Spent on a Springmaid Sheet ads which I remember as being the only part of adult magazines that my brothers and I avidly devoured.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This is the first biography of Elliott White Springs (1896-1959), who was fifth-ranking U.S. pilot of World War I, best-selling author, advertising genius, and maverick maser of a textile manufacturing empire. War Birds, his masterpiece, inspired many books and films on the youth of World War I and the twenties. During the depression, Springs expanded the family textile mills in South Carolina, as others were retrenching, and made Springmaid sheets and the Springmaid girls household words.

Originally published in 1987.

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
