SHALER, ROBERT. - The Boy Scouts for City Improvement.

Cleveland, Arthur Westbrook [c1914]. Octavo publisher's colour illustrated wrapper (inner hinges strengthened); 160pp. Some browning of the cheap paper but a pretty good copy. ¶ Not the first edition but much preferable to the Hurst, New York edition in cloth with an anodyne, generic cover of boy scouts holding hands. Camp enough but hardly relevant to the story. I'll bet few town planning collections anywhere have a copy of this. It is perhaps more civic improvement than planning but the subjects go hand in hand and few pieces of planning art show the passion and the thrill that is inherent in a city plan such as is displayed here. Shaler wrote a string of these scout books in an incredibly short time - some twenty titles in a year - but after reading a few paragraphs it's easy to see that the hardest bit was coming up with a subject.
