Scrapbook of a sailor aboard the U.S.S. Oklahoma

 Collection — Box: 1 [31151030133338], Folder: 3
Identifier: MS-0682
Copied from the dealer's description: "Beige cloth over boards with “CASH” stamped in black on upper board; pp. 150, featuring handwritten poems, newspaper and magazine clippings, photographs, pressed leaves, locks of hair, and quite a few kisses with bright red lipstick. A few spots of soiling on boards; spine tips and corners just a touch frayed. Internally clean, though a few things have come un-glued, been covered over, or torn away – all lending the impression that this one-of-a-kind volume was a bit obsessive, much loved, an integral part of this sailor's life, and years in the making."
