Rob,

Books were handed out as prizes quite often. As an example there were poem contests and the winner got a book. We have one of those "prize" books too. Itīs Virgina Eifertīs "Delta Queen - The Story of a Steamboat". Hereīs a link to the inscription

http://www.steamboats.org/weblogs/ca...-Week/P36.html

The Purserīs name must be Robert McCann.

But Iīm sure otherīs do know much more than I do.

Carmen
