    Horne, Charles F. Ph.D, and Walter F. Austin:  Source Records of The Great War (Complete Set Vols. 1-7).  (no city stated): National Alumni, 1923. Registered Limited Edition. All seven volumes of this complete set are in fine condition and are all bound in highly gilt decorated leather in various colors with gilt top edges and deckled fore and bottom edges. Each is a small quarto of 9 1/8 by 6 1/4 inches. Each volume is contained within its original glassine jacket (the jacket for volume I is tattered) the others are in very good condition. Each volume and its jacket are contained within a light duty, cardboard slipcase. The contents are immaculate with many pages uncut. Each set was originally sold with a registered certificate tipped in at the front of volume 1. In this set the registered certificate in Vol. 1 showing the original owner, Daniel Drew Ostrander, has gifted the set to his two daughters. A two page sealed certificate follows noting the war record of Corporal Daniel Drew Ostrander which is signed by the National Adjutant and the National Commander. This set is contained within its original, wooden, finger-jointed shipping box with a sliding lid. The set represents "A comprehensive and readable source record of the world's great war, emphasizing the more important events, and presenting these as complete narrative in the actual words of the chief officials and most eminent leaders." The volumes contain "documents from government archives and other authoritative sources, with outline narratives, indices, chronologies, and courses of reading on sociological movements and individual national activities." Illustrated with colored maps, charts and photographic reproductions. This is a wonderful set in spectacular condition. In all likely hood it has never been opened and read. Very infrequently found without major rubbing and wear to the spines. Laid-in to the box are three items which only came with the set and were often discarded as follows: 1) A one page Notice containing instructions on how to open each book. 2) The Absolute Truth is a 31 page staple bound booklet of gruesome, black and white images from battlefield photographs. 3) "The Silent Messenger Says" is a 6 page printed, advance publication containing hundreds of reviews by readers attesting to the accuracy of the set, together with a reproduction of a drawing by Charles Dana Gibson showing Lady Liberty escorting a blinded soldier who is holding a wreath of valor
