Greetings All,

For those who may be interested I have managed to add another very hard-to-find volume to my shelves and I've been hunting this one down for a long, long time. It is the original 1918 private printing of the "Letters of Cyrus Foss Chamberlain: A Member of the Lafayette Flying Corps". This particular work has been a personal quest of mine because Chamberlain was one of several Minnesota men who served as combat pilots in the air service in WWI. In addition he was one of the two for which Wold-Chamberlain Field, (now Minneapolis-St, Paul International Airport), was named, the other being Ernest Groves Wold. The book is a collection of his letters home and was compiled and published by his father after Cyrus was killed in action near Le Ferte-Milon on 13 June, 1918. The book is in beautiful condition both inside and out and is one of but a handful known to still exist from the original privately printed run of 500. Until just recently it has not been reprinted, however with the advent of e-press you can now secure a copy if you wish to. It is also available for reading online.

Here are a couple of photos showing my latest treasure:

Thanks folks, bringing all these books together has been a labour of love for a good many years.

Banjoman, it is unfortunate but the museums I've talked with, while somewhat interested in taking my collection, have no space to display it and would simply pack it away in storage, (and likely sell it off piecemeal at a later date in order to generate operating funds).

lederhosen, which book did you order?

Ace_Pilto, many of these old books were indeed put together with some real quality. And it goes to how much things have changes when even what was considered a "cheap" binding back then is oft times nicer than the "fine" bindings that have been offered in more recent years.

Lou,
You need to talk with Musee de l'air LaMfair. It is a very nice place and would be happy to display your collection. I happen to know the curator. PM me for contact info. Good to see have you back!

I have been to La Ferte-Milon (sometimes La Ferté with the accent, sometimes with or without the hyphen!). Beautiful little town, my Father-in-Law was born there along with Racine. Other relations live at Fismes where there was a German airfield in WWI. The airfield is still there.

You laugh, but if no one in my family wants to keep the collection it might just get passed on to just such an establishment. winkngrin


Jim, it is wonderful that you have been to such places and that you have an actual family connection to them.


lederhosen, I really enjoy Heydemarck's books, I think you will too.

It's great to see you back, Lou.

Another beautiful book that couldn't have gone to a better owner. I dare say you probably have one of the best private or public WW1 aviation book collections in your corner of the world.

I'm in a somewhat similar situation with my rather extensive medal collection. Nobody in my family is interested in them, and since I probably won't be around forever on this earth, I guess I should make some arrangements to ensure that the medals are not simply thrown aways as useless thrash when I'm no longer here to take care of them.

Lou, the WWI museum in Kansas City isn't interested! I would think they would love to have that collection, but maybe that is just my naivete showing.

Banjoman, I've not talked with the KC WWI Museum about it, but I will next time I come through there. I'm usually in that area every few months or so.
