Camp Travis and Its Part in the World War , published by EB Johns, New York City, 1919. Heavily illustrated book detailing the goings-on at Camp Travis in San Antonio, Texas. Camp Travis was a major training point for the US Army during WWI. Every aspect of camp life is covered, with photos of the various companies/detachments/divisions/battalions/etc. T's a dust jacket printed saying it's a souvenir of a 1928 American Legion Convention held in San Antonio--this is not a mismatched cover, as I've seen this cover on other copies of this book I've come across--apparently t were some old copies of the book that were distributed at the convention--the back of the cover states that "Through the Efforts of the American Legion the Price of This Book Has Been reduced from $3.50 to $2.00". It's hardcover, about 9x12", 336 glossy pages; the interior is in very good condition with no marks, stains, folds, tears, dog-ears, etc.; the cover and dust jacket show very light shelf wear. A very nice copy of an unusual book. Buyer pays $4.75 shipping in the US, insurance extra at cost. I accept payment from winning bidders in the United States and Canada only.
