Descripción

35x22cm, 12pp, with 12 photographs. Provenance: (Leland) Stanford (Junior) University, from prof. E(phraim).D(ouglas) Adams, then to the Library of Congress, then to me.** Only one copy is located in the WorldCat/OCLC, at the Bibliotheque de documentation internationale contemporaine Nanterre).** I had no idea that the Salvation Army was responsible for sending out a quarter million immigrants into the world in just a couple of dozen years. This is a substantial travel program, and a dissemination of potential proselytizers into the far reaches of the Empire's domain. And as it turns out, the Salvation Army HQ in London was destroyed during the Blitz, along with the records of this great migration--very little remains of any official records regarding this long effort. "The Salvation Army was the United Kingdom’s largest voluntary migration society in the first half of the twentieth century, helping around 250,000 people to emigrate from the British Isles to the British Empire Dominions. Given the wide-reaching impact of this work and the considerable resources The Salvation Army dedicated to it, it is surprising how little evidence and knowledge of it there is now."--SA website Condition: the oversize pamphlet has a number of problems to the cover, with various nicks and scrapes and bits missing--also there is a 5" tear in the front and rear wrapper; that said, the text is VG and printed on a slick paper, which helped its survival; not so for the covers.
