Lovely, tight, bright copy of this early "Lakeside Classic," the annual keepsake given by this printer and publisher to friends and clients starting in 1903. Collection of various writings (letters, articles, manuscripts, etc.) from such figures as Horace White, William Bross, Arthur M. Kinzie and others. Early Lakesides from their "green period" -- the first 24 years -- have become rather scarce in recent years.
