Waterman's Autograph Album and Advertisement

Waterman's Autograph Album and Advertisement, 1932 - Back in 1932, Waterman was most likely looking for ways to stir up some additional business and offered up a contest to fill a special hardcover bound book with autographs of famous people. There would be 333 awards; 133 cash prizes, 100 Waterman Fountain Pens (Lady Patricia for girls and No. 94 for boys) and 100 Waterman Mechanical Pencils. Pretty heady stuff in 1932! Florence White in Canaan, Maine acquired one of the the Autograph Albums. Instead of collecting autographs of famous people, Miss White used her autograph to copy essays and record a few other notes about Freshman Year Intertainment. (Yes, that is correct – NOT entertainment, but intertainment! Most of her writings were done with a fountain pen in a sepia colored ink, but she also did some writing with a pencil. This hardbound Waterman’s Autograph Album is bound in a dark brown cloth, measures 7.25 x 5 inches. The pages are lightly yellowed. Overall it is in excellent condition. Unfortunately no autographs, but still a rare item. Plus: Bonus American Boy - Youth's Companion full size 10x14 original advertisement for Waterman's Autograph Contest featuring $2500 in cash prizes, 333 grand prizes, the Autograph album and Lady Patricia & No. 94 Waterman Pens advertised.
