Price : US $255.00
Very rare 1911 Boy Scout Handbook. Purchased at an Estate Sale in Missouri. As you can see from the pictures, it was copyrighted in 1911 and no further words are added so it appears to be a 1st edition. It was used by a scout who became a Tenderfoot on Feb. 21st 1912. All but one page is clean of notes, but on page 53 are notes pertaining to reading a compass.
The book is a limp cloth book with some condition issues. The cover shows wear and the spine is lacking. In the front of the book are 2 pages which are attached to eachover but are detached from the book. Other than these few issues the book is fantastic. Tremendous illustrations and very interesting ads.
I am no authority on Boy Scout memorabilia. I tried to do research on this book and the only similar books that I found were on a book websight. There were 2 books listed as second editions for costs of 785.00 and 850.00. The 785.00 also had condition issues. The reserve on this book is less than for those 2nd editions.
After seeing similar books I ebay. I have removed the reserve. Good luck
Shipping will be Federal Express and will include insurance.
