I ordered two of the reprints of Rose’s books through Amazon. They came with Amazon’s usual speed. The two I got were:
- Diverging Roads ISBN 1432685244
This is a good copy. There are boxes along top of each page, but it looks like part of a design. I really don’t think it is though because it looks like part of a scanner on a few pages, although it’s just blocks on most pages. Although not hardback, this is a good substitute for the original. The binding looks pretty good and it is much easier than printing it out yourself.
- Making of Herbert Hoover ISBN1432548034
Not as good a copy as Diverging Roads. Maybe a quarter of the pages should have been adjusted and rescanned. On these pages it appears more like a photo scan and the original page itself looks like a dark discolored square around the text. However, it is
still very legible even on these pages and while not as close to an original
copy as Diverging Roads, it’s still a copy option if you don’t have an original
Kessinger Publishing currently offers 4 titles by Rose and one by Jessie Field Shambaugh (mother of 4H). When I first published this, their website included an online catalog, but now their site just redirects you to Amazon.
They offer the titles in both paperback and hardback editions. Find the Amazon search results.
UPDATED March 18, 2016: I fixed a formatting glitch and reworked the paragraph about what is available as of today and updated the links. I also added my current signature block.
