The Destiny of a City [Champaign, Illinois], Hessel, J. F.
41 Hessel, J. F. The Destiny of a City [Champaign, Illinois]
Side-stapled booklet with yellow paper covers, apparently self-published. Covers are mildly soiled, light creasing. . This is a proposed design for a boulevard system for the city of Champaign, Illinois, by the author. Includes a fold-out blueprint showing the design, as well as textual discussion. Since there are several Hessel place names in present-day Champaign, it seems possible that this design was adopted, in whole or in part, for the expansion of Champaign. The booklet is undated, but the blueprint bears a date of 1917. This is the first printing, NOT a modern reprint. Scarce. . 8vo 8" - 9" tall. 12 pages.

48 Kansas Historical Society KANSAS HISTORICAL QUARTERLY, VOLS. 1 THROUGH 41, 1931-1975 AKA Kansas Historical Collections, Vols 18-58.
A few volumes have a bit of shelfwear rubbing or a minor ding, but no real defects. Blue cloth bindings with gilt titles are tight, books appear unread. Two volumes had penciled owner information on free endpaper; these have been erased. A beautiful set, very nearly As New, complete from 1931 to 1975. .

A randomly chosen volume (vol. 26) contains articles on Kansas cowtown police officers and gunfighters; Cotton Whigs; business and agricultural conditions in Kansas 1871-1888; Kansa village locations according to McCoy's probable route; Wyandotte and the first "Exodusters" of 1879; Monument Station in Gove County; Kansas congressmen and reapportionment, and more. . 8vo - 8" to 9" tall.
