In an exceedingly rare instance of survival, this book canvassing kit has tucked into it the script -- titled “Canvass on The History” – intended to be used by the door-to-door salesman (or woman, in this case). The History and Romance of Crime is one of a several salesman’s dummies used by Mrs. M.E. Waite of Worcester.  Tucked into the dummies are business correspondence with publishers, subscription slips, blank forms.
