[Round Oak Stoves] If You Want To Know


The cover of this cream-colored pamphlet has a color drawing of an American Indian, with a tattoo of Round Oak on his left leg, holding a peace pipe and pointing to his left. The back cover has a color drawing of an Indian kneeling down and showing a Round Oak stove to a debonair young man standing with his hands in his pockets. The back cover extends to the left with a flap which, when folded over the front cover, shows the Indian on the front pointing to "If You Want To Know" in red and black lettering in a box with a thin black outline. At the bottom is a small color drawing of a peace pipe. The text inside describes the Round Oak stove with black-and-white drawings of various features of the stoves. There are also descriptions and drawings of the Round Oak Room Heater and the Great Round Oak Furnace. There are no page numbers.
