1924-25 WHITE MOUNTAIN NATURAL CURIOSITY BOOKLETS – BOXED SET

1924-25 WHITE MOUNTAIN NATURAL CURIOSITY BOOKLETS – BOXED SET OF SIX (6)

In the 1920s, Guy Roberts of Whitefield, New Hampshire, published a number of booklets of the natural beauty and wonders of the White Mountain tourist areas. Roberts loved the area, and the Old Man of the Mountains. In 1906 he discovered the condition of the Old Man, and advocated for measures to be taken to secure the rocks.

His booklets are often found, and when found run $25 and up. His booklets measure about 3 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches, and in some instances the text opens up on a fan-fold sheet. Boxed sets were sold, and this auction is for one of the Roberts’ Series in the original box. The paper label from the box top is chipped and loose, and the sides of the box top lid are lacking as you will see later – below are the booklets in this set:

THE PROFILE AND HOW IT WAS SAVED – 1924 Fifth Edition – fan-fold 22 pages
