Separately bound supplement to The Little Man, Cincinnati, Ohio, 1939. 20 pp.
With illustrations by  Charles Atkinson
  Jesse Stuartís  Tim was written as an assignment in a creative writing class at Lincoln Memorial University in 1927. It was published as a special supplement to an issue of the small magazine, The Little Man, in 1939.   Because of the journalís brief existence and its limited circulation, this item is one of Jesse Stuartís rarest publications for collectors to locate. The supplement was also printed on very  poor paper, making copies extremely fragile.

Robert Hayes was the president of Marshall University, and was the individual who approved the Jesse Stuart Day celebration for the author in 1975. Kenneth Slack was the Director of Libraries at the time, and was the person who facilitate the purchase of the Jesse Stuart collection of first editions from International Bookfinders in 1975.
