    William McKinley et al: Unbelievably Jam-packed Record Book of a Turn-of-the-century Salesman of Political Campaign Novelties. A mixture of price list correspondence on company letterheads, and more illustrated sales brochures, period all dating from the 1890's are all glued into this massive volume. Literally hundreds of items, sometimes four or five to a page. We tried to count and gave up! If all could be removed and sold individually, there would be thousands of dollars worth of material here at fair retail values. Many are only loosely attached, or could be removed with glue residue on reverses. The exterior of the three-inch-thick clothbound volume is worn, and the album pages themselves are brittle with age. But most of the campaign item literature itself has been well-protected from the ravages of time and are in excellent condition. Surely the most extensive archive ever uncovered with this sort of material. The book measures 8.5" x 14" and is fully 3" thick.
