Courter, J. W.  
Aladdin: The Magic Name in Lamps
 Picture
Publisher: Wallace-Homestead Co., 1978 Des Moines, IA.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "Eighty years ago a very small boy on a Nebraska farm read and reread the Arabian Night's story of Aladdin in a room of darkness but for the flickering yellow light of an open flame 'coal oil lamp'. Several years later that boy, grown to manhood, found a lamp that erased the darkness with a soft white light and it was only natural that he named the lamp 'Aladdin'. An appropriate name, indeed, for this revolutionary boon to rural America seemed to be nothing short of magical in the intensity of its light. For those who lit the lamp, trimmed its wick and cleaned its chimney, or just enjoyed its friendly glow, the Aladdin lamp recalls many memories of golden childhood. It made learning possible for many boys and girls; made it possible for them to acquire knowledge that helped them realize their dreams and aspirations. Later, Aladdin brought this white light to every kind of habitat in every corner of the globe. For many, it has been the only light of their entire life. Even when electricity comes, there are a loyal few who profess to use the electric light only 'to find the match' to light their Aladdin. When I read Professor Courter's book, it not only brought back the nostalgic memories identified with our company's early days and the people who shaped them, but also disclosed much about Aladdin's past that only the inspired resourcefulness and dedication of the author could reconstruct. I am grateful that he became enamoured with the Aladdin Lamp as a part of Americana. I hope that this book will help you share with him his interest in this part of our prairie past and perhaps you, too, can enjoy not only beginning your Aladdin collection, but adding to its history." Well illustrated. x + 168 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
