Black cover with gold lettering. Some light soiling to cover. Contents clean. Has keys to sermon outlines and bible readings. Fully indexed. This is a scarce if not rare and unique work. Amos H. Gottschall (1854-1938) was born in Marietta, Pa. At ten he walked thirty miles to a larger town. He jumped a freight, explored Philadelphia and other cities, spent a night in jail with a Union deserter, all before he was twelve. He worked as a printer for fifty years with over 37 newspapers across the country. His travels mainly on the Trans-Continental RR took him to almost all states and Canada and Mexico. In 1876 at age 22 he established Gottschall Remedies: salves, worm pills, and a pill called Life Essence and especially his "Liniment". He was fascinated with Indians and would sell his "Liniment" (53% alcohol) to the Indians whos camps he often visited. He printed numerous religious and Indian publications such as A Collection of Familiar Hymns (1894), Abolished Rites, or Spiritual, not Ceremonial Worship (1909), The Chippewea's Last Turn (1870) and many others. This Sermon Outlines is very rare as it does not appear in list of his other publications. The author had a colorful and adventursome life. He neither drank or smoked, was married twice, and reportedly shot and killed a man and went to hide in the Souix Indian camps. Rare. ; 112 pages

6 Reid, Bertha Westbrook Wallace Reid His life story
New York Sorg Pub. Co 1923 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Blue cover with gold print shows spotting Very rare account of Wallace Reid by his mother. William Wallace Reid was named the silent "screens most perfect lover" by Motion Picture Magazine. Born William Wallace Reid in St. Louis, Missouri into a show business family, his mother Bertha Westbrook was an actress and his father, Hal Reid(1860-1920), worked successfully in a variety of theatrical jobs, travelling the country. As a boy, Wallace Reid was performing on stage at an early age but acting was put on hold while he obtained an education at Freehold Military School in Freehold, New Jersey. A gifted all-around athlete, Reid participated in a number of sports while also following an interest in music, learning to play the piano, banjo, drums, and the violin. As a teenager, he spent time in Wyoming where he learned to be an outdoorsman.Reid was drawn to the burgeoning motion picture industry by his father who would shift from the theatre to acting, writing, and directing films. In 1910, a 19-year-old Wallace Reid appeared in his first motion picture called The Phoenix. while working on location in Oregon making The Valley of the Giants (1919), Reid was injured in a train wreck and in order to keep on filming he was prescribed morphine for his pain. The powerful drug almost immediately led to a deadly addiction but Reid kept on working at a frantic pace in films that were growing more physically demanding and changing from 15-20 minutes in duration to as much as an hour. Reid's morphine dependency deepened at a time when proper help for any form of addiction was non-existent. By late 1922, his health had deteriorated badly and after contracting the flu, he fell into a coma from which he never recovered.Dead at age thirty-one, Wallace Reid was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.Unlike the self-destructive behavior of other stars of that era such as Barbara La Marr, Jack Pickford, and Jeanne Eagels whose death resulted from drugs and/or alcohol abuse, historical records point to Wallace Reid being a victim of medical ignorance.
