Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Signals [The Famous Round Oaks]


The wraparound cover is a color drawing by Remington Schuler of a kneeling Indian holding a leather form sending smoke signals from a small fire in front of him. There are small tools next to the fire. On the back cover, the back of an Indian is seen peering over the ledge at the horizon. In the clouds above is the Round Oak symbol. The title page has "The Famous Round Oaks Stoves, Ranges and Furnaces With A Good Character" with the company's logo, name and address below. At the bottom is "Makers of Good Goods Only." The text of the pamphlet promotes the Round Oak stoves with black-and-white drawings and descriptions of various models and features of the stoves, room heater, range and furnace.
