Welcome to the Illinois State Historical Sociey's online store. Over the years the Society has accumulated many books and since it is neither a research center nor a lending library, we have created this Store to make these books available for purchase. Most are single title items in like new condition. In addition to books, we are also offering for sale back issues of the Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society, art work, and stationery. All proceeds from these sales will be used to support the Illinois State Historical Society.

*Most of the books for sale are new or very gently used and in extremely good condition.  If you have any specific questions, please feel free to call the office at 217-525-2781, Ext. 1.

Let's Look for Mail Delivery in Illinois Post Offices - fc045944-81a9-8e69-17c7-8a2a63ce218d
Manufacturer: Mary Emma Thompson
Let's Look for Mail Delivery in Illinois Post Offices

The art in post offices is part of the New Deal Art Project/The Treasury Department Section of Painting and Sculpture (the section of fine arts) created by Franklin D. Roosevelt as a means of creating work for artists and bringing art to the rural population during the Great Depression. The artwork includes murals (oil on canvas and frescos) and sculpture (reliefs and a few freestanding sculptures). This collection of 7 books has photographs of most of the artwork in Illinois. The third book in the collection represents various views of mail delivery in pioneer Illinois.
