    Great Civil War Advertising Broadside for "Traveling Bed Trunk". 5 3/4" x 7" obviously particularly directed towards officers of the Army as noted by the huge bold headline "TO THE ARMY" followed by the substantially smaller print "And to the Traveling Public Generally !" Further mentions that the trunk is wee suited for "OFFICERS IN THE ARMY". Lists various sales outlets in Phila., Washington, D. C., Baltimore and Harrisburg, Pa. It is possible the blank margins have been slightly trimmed. Some very minor damp staining else excellent. We have, in fact seen a number of the beds identified to Civil War officers over the years. Very scarce broadside.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
