About the Author

Through the years, (since school days,) I have enjoyed writing not only poems, but studying quotes, many interesting things people have said , and relaying with this opinion of the phrases, why I agreed with them. One most familiar short phrase, words of gratitude that has been spoken for centuries, all over the world, by men, women and youth is this: "Thank you!" As we, citizens of the United States have continued to express thanks to our American infantries who have been on duty, risking their lives on the battlefi elds, shown much power and willingness to endure, I decided to write compliments to them; write poems and quotes, give a more clear point reason why we appreciate them so much. It also gives explanation of the phrase "I Miss You, We Miss you." Yes . . . . . . .. most pleased with them for going to do what they had to do in Iraq . . . . . . and can't hardly wait until they get back home again!!

This apparently was published by a vanity press due to the typos (on the back cover, "...because it was being studied for a reason; to formate a history book, one that would open readers eyes...". Formate is a salt or ester of formic acid. "Readers eyes" should be "Readers' eyes". There is a brief introduction of Sears that seems like it was written several years before the book was published. Although most of the book is copies of pages from the 1900 Sears & Roebuck catalogue, there is a section of typed examples of items that have prices listed, for example, "Price: $.65 cents, $95 cents, $1.24 cents, $1.55 cents" (the decimal is missing from the "$95 cents) and cents is redundant.

The majority of the book is copies of pages from the 1900 catalogue, in no particular order. The 1900 Sears & Roebuck catalogue must have been huge - the highest numbered page I could find was 1106 (a full-page ad for a sewing machine for $14.95). The copy of the page appears to have been mutilated by a hole punch, that, fortunately, doesn't hide any information. However, there are several pages that appear to have been punched through and product information is sadly lost. Another issue with some of these copies is that the edges are cut off, losing the prices of several items.

Aside from these problems, there are some interesting historical items. In 1900, the Sears & Roebuck catalogue offered almost everything, which was especially important to people living on farms and small towns. You could order clothing, shoes, boots, toys, jewelry, furniture, washing machines, stoves, refrigerators, bathtubs, cookware, dishes, food, and many other items. You could buy everything you needed to fully equip a house.
