Four Minute Essays- Frank Crane- 1919- Vol 1-10

This is a series of 10 leather bound and beautiful( hand tooled?) small (5 ¾" X 4”)books by Dr. Frank Crane(1861-1928). He was a Presbyterian minister and a popular publicist, speaker and columnist in the late 19th early part of the 20th century .Newspapers in the eastern United States carried his columns.

Published by William H Wise & Company in 1919 they are first editions and each volume is 160 pages in length. Among the over 300 essays in the chapter headings are Mind Healing, The Gary System, The Fool, Money Makers,The Unconquerable, just to name a few. The last book contains an index in the back.

All of these books are in good to near excellent condition with small amounts of spinal and cover wear. A few books have some minor small tears. T is some mellowing of pages and a little pencil writing on the front page of a few of them. Volume one is missing the authors picture which had been torn out and has a small tear in it. I have the picture as you can see and it can be reinserted back in the book.

A great complete collectible series that is somewhat rare to find these days. They will be a wonderful edition to your library.

Good luck and happy bidding.
