Sponges and Pumice
Being a Discreet & Truthful Write-up of the Concern Of James H. Rhodes & Co.

by Elbert Hubbard, 1912

This booklet measures 8" x 6" with 21 pages. I assume this booklet has to do with bath products.
The publishing date in the booklet is 1912 but the first page mentions 12,000 telegrams to Taft, the date of 1915 and San Francisco. I assume this is in reference to lobbying that took place and led to Taft's 1911 decision to hold the 1915 World's Fair or Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco vice San Diego. This booklet is not listed in McKenna.
