7 Hauendstein, Edward Harry A History of Wayne County in the World War and in the Wars of the Past
Wooster, Ohio Wayne County History Co. 1919 Presumed First. Hard Cover Very Good No DJ 
Overall this is a very nice book, clean and tightly bound with no cracks to gutters. The important defects are to the spine where there's some darkening at top and bottom and se light wrinkles to spine.There's also a Christmas gift inscription written on the front free endpaper and dated 1972. I will enclose an older bookplate to use or not, at buyer's choice. The focus here is WWI and the people of Wayne County, Ohio. Of course the military was important, but the books cover other ways citizens served -- in volunteeer organizations, the Students Army Training Corps, the American Protective League, the Council of National Defense, the Food Adminsitration, the Liberty Loan Drives, the Red Cross, War Charity Organizations, the Mothers' Club and more. There's also info on the men who died and the dreadful Spanish Influenza. Book measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 394 pages including index. There are also photographs at the front of the book of soldiers who died and citizens, both men and women, who volunteered in other ways.

The Second Liberty Loan WWI   1917 (McAdoo speech, explanation, and application), McAdoo, Honorable W.G.
10 McAdoo, Honorable W.G. The Second Liberty Loan WWI 1917 (McAdoo speech, explanation, and application)
Washington D.C. Government Printing Office 1917 Soft Cover Very Good 
There were many items published to convince citizens to buy Second Liberty Bonds to finance WWI. I have one advertising piece here in color which is graphically appealing. The other three items are plain janes, but they're also the nuts and bolts that got the job done. First off we have a booklet titled "The Second Liberty Loan and the Causes of Our War with Germany" given as a speech by the Honorable W. G. McAdoo which was delivered at the annual convention of the American Bankers' Association in Atlantic City on September 20, 1917. McAdoo was Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of the Treasury and it was up to him to explain how the idea worked as a partial investment combined with taxes. The three billion dollar offer was open for only six weeks and was done by November 15, 1917. The booklet contains 16 seriously dense pages. In addition to that is a larger four page explanation of all the ins and outs for those who wanted in. It shows one small circular stain to last page. The third item is the application to invest. The application had once been pasted in a scrapbook, but I was able to remove the adhered paper leaving just a few small stains from the glue. The whole is not commonly found. (BUS.)
