While thrifting this past weekend I turned up and interesting bit of NYC ephemera. This edition of Treasure Island was published by and given gratis to guests of Hotel Taft:
It's undated but I'm guessing late 1920s-30s from the cover design. The copyright page says
"Tarry at the Taft, New York". The FEP carries this printed in bookplate:
and rear endpaper features an ad for "Hotel St. George Pool, Clark St., Brooklyn" where you can "Swim in Sparkling Natural Salt Water, Bask in Heathful Sun Rays" all for $1.
I found nine titles published by the Taft listed on ABE: Alice in Wonderland, Tale of Two Cities, Sherlock Holmes, Soldiers Three, Last Days of Pompeii, Scarlet Letter, The Dynamiter, The Light that Failed, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
I wish hotel chains and publishers would try this again. It would be nice to find some reading material--besides the bible--on my hotel nightstand.
