Hardcover, red cloth lettered in gold. 187 pages with 22 pages containing the Constitution of the United States and 19 pages of teaching Notes appended, along with Glossary; Comparative View of the Legislative and Executive Departments of the Governments of the United States and Great Britain; Index [all comprising an additional 60 pages]. Illustrated with drawings, maps and tables, with 8 maps in full color, three of which are double page. Second edition. An interesting work, reflecting what was deemed most important for teacher’s to convey about American history, with the largest single section given over to the colonial period, American Revolution and establishment of a new government. The modern reader will be interested in the final chapter outlining “problems of to-day and of the near future” which discusses imperialism, socialism, Civil Service reform, race problems, the temperance question and women’s suffrage among others. No previous ownership marks. Light abrasion and toning at front gutter. A clean, square, unmarked copy. Very good.
