Michigan's White Pine Era Booklet

Michigan's White Pine Era Booklet


I was looking for items to add to my Valentine's Day decorating collection and the pink wash of color on this book caught my eye. It is a charming illustration of white pine in the early days of Michigan with a predominately pink color. But the book itself steals the show!

This book is a reprint of Dr. Maybee's original article describing the pine logging industry of Michigan from 1840-1900, which appeared in the December, 1959, issue of Michigan History. It is printed as a book in the John M. Munson Michigan History Fund Publications series that was published and distributed by the Michigan Historical Commission.

The softcover booklet is 56 pages including Sources, Recommended Reading, lyrics to three lumberjack songs, 60 b/w illustrations including historical photos, company log marks, small maps, etc, with captions. This is 2nd printing from September 1964. It is a fascinating read.

The booklet itself is in good condition with some creasing of the bottom right hand corner and a few stains on the off-white part of the covers (more on the back than the front). It is stamped on the upper left hand corner of the inside cover with Jim Brinkman and on the upper right hand corner with KFT0100.
