Washington, D.C.: Review & Herald Publishing Association, 1928. This is one of the more interesting Salesman's Sample bools that Quercus has seen, intended for a religious audience. Arthur S. Maxwell (1896-1970) was a prolific author and administrator in the Seventh Day Adventist Church. There is no publication date listed, but LoC's holding of this title puts it at 1928, and the hair and fashion styles seem to indicate that date or perhaps a bit later. Black leather binding with fancy gilt title block; marbled paper endpapers. Next is a fold-out dispalay of cover color choices: blue, red, green, orange, and brown. Following is a selection of stories and illustrations in black and white, then the salesman's order ledger (no entries), and, most interesting, samples of color paperbound choices. This is in great condition, with the exception of a cracked hinge where the cover samples meet the textblock. This is a common problem with sample books; they were opened and closed frequently, and the different samples often put strain on their neighbors. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. First Thus.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Salesman's Dummy. First Edition.
