Description

Here is another interesting variant on “A Message to Garcia”, the inspirational missive that launched Elbert Hubbard to fame in 1899. This rare booklet was printed to celebrate the creation of the Military Order of the Purple Heart in 1932 (dated 1782–1832), Washington DC, Chicago. Reprinted by special permission of The Roycrofters of East Aurora, NY. I can’t find any more anywhere online except on the Roycroftbooks.org website, which dates it in error to 1927 (the Purple Heart wasn’t created until 1932). Small booklet, just 8 pages. Paper wraps in good condition, with folds to lower corners, light soiling, and inner gathering separated from staples (but present). A hard to find addition for your Garcia collection.
