Description: 1 page, 20 x 16 inches, Washington, July 12, 1918 -- a partly printed World War I military appointment, appointing William Crozier to the rank of Major General of the line, countersigned by Newton D. Baker as Secretary of War. This document has never been folded and maintains its original luster with the Presidential seal still attached. All signatures are dark and bold. William Crozier (1855 - 1942) was a highly respected American Army officer, having fought in the Indian campaigns, inventor of the Buffington-Crozier gun carriage, and a delegate to the International Peace Conference at the Hague. During World War I, he was a member of the Supreme War Council working closely with his opposite number in the British Government, Winston S. Churchill. This document would prove to be Crozier's last and most important military appointment. Near fine condition.

I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
