TALES OF THE SUN-LAND

Tales of the Sunland cover.jpg (58837 bytes)

By Verner Z. Reed.  Illustrated by L. Maynard Dixon.  Continental Publishing Co., New York and London, 1897, first edition.  Original illustrated cloth binding; 250 pages.

SOLD

Tales of Sun-Land inscribed to WSS.jpg (36549 bytes)

Inscription to W. S. Stratton, Cripple Creek's most enigmatic gold baron, by Verner Z. Reed in his book, TALES OF THE SUN-LAND.  Also, one of L. Maynard Dixon first illustrated books.

Even more intriguing, the existence of this book contradicts of the story told on Page 212 by historian Marshall Sprague in his book, MONEY MOUNTAIN (Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1953).  Sprague reported that after W. S. Stratton had read this specific volume he burned it in the ash pit behind his house.  Evidently the tale is apocryphal as this book is in near fine condition, both inside and out, and enhanced by a superb association inscription penned by Verner Reed.  Provenance for this book is documented; its previous owner lived in California.

Soul of Paris signed 1.jpg (36413 bytes)

Condition: very good; some edgewear; bumped corners; occasional light soiling.  Ernest P. Marsh and Verner Z. Reed served as labor mediators for President Woodrow Wilson and his special PRESIDENT'S MEDIATION COMMISSION*, 1917 -  1918.  

*[The President's Mediation Commission represented a partial federal response to two aspects of wartime labor policy: 1) the spreading wave of strikes which interfered with the production of goods deemed vital to the war effort; and, 2) the growth of labor radicalism associated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), which precipitated widespread state and local repression of labor's rights.  On the urging of A.F. of L. President Samuel Gompers and of Secretary of Labor William B. Wilson, the Commission was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson on September 19, 1917. The Commission consisted of two representatives of management, two labor officials and Chairman William Wilson. Most important in establishing the guidelines on which the Commission operated was Felix Frankfurter, appointed as Commission secretary. These included the promotion of A.F. of L.-style trade unions and industrial democracy and the elimination of "subversive" IWW locals.  Among the areas investigated by the Commission were the copper mining areas of Arizona and Montana, the lumber industry of the Pacific Northwest, telephone operators in San Francisco and packinghouse workers in Chicago. The Commission's findings were subsequently published as a special bulletin by the Dept. of Labor.]

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
