Attractive 1929 H527 Stevens-Davis  "Men Of America" Booklets complete set, stored in its original box.  These booklets were produced by the Stevens-Davis company of Chicago, and distributed to the company's employees as a motivational tool.  Each "card" is actually an eight-page booklet with colorful covers featuring an illustration or photographic representation of a legendary American, with biographical information inside.  The accompanying wood box appears to be a book, and was meant to be displayed as such.  This is a very scarce and desirable set.

The box is in VG/EX condition, with its original parts intact and some age and use-related wear at the spine and edges. The set is complete, the booklets averaging VG to VG/EX condition, with some stronger and a few lesser.  

This is a substantial piece, and a very forward-thinking idea for an employer, particularly given the expense of producing such a thing during the Depression.  An outstanding document of America at the beginning of a new era in American business.
