T22583

Young People's Story of American Achievements 1901 Rare This is a very nice, well illustrated book with over 300 portraits of every president and most every prominent character in the history of The United States of America. The portraits are black and white frames, some are two frames to a page, others are smaller 4 frames to a page. There are over 700 pages in this volume, of portraits with some text, and text covering American history, broken into various period, and administrations. On the title page it reads "ILLUSTRATED HAND-BOOK OF AMERICAN HISTORY, AND BIOGRAPHY" The inside title page says the title is "YOUNG PEOPLE'S STORY OF AMERICAN ACHIEVEMENTS" and the outside spine title reads "YOUNG PEOPLE'S STORY OF AMERICAN HISTORY". Basically the same title except for the last word. I have no explaination as to why the difference, as the binding and cover all appear to be original. The inside title page also states "ESPECIALLY PREPARED FOR THE PUBLISHERS BY AMERICA'S CELEBRATED HISTORIAN BENSON J. LOSSING L. L. D.". There is also pictures of historical places, battle seens and history buildings. This is a special edition, for subscribers only. Copyright in 1901 by "THE HOME EDUCATION LEAGUE OF AMERICA" printed and bound by "AMERICAN MANUFACTURING COMPANY NEW HAVEN CONN.". This book is 7.5" x 10", hardbound, cloth covered, with gold lettering on the front cover and spine, It also has marbled page edges. This book is in good+ condition with bumped corners and some corner and edge wear on the covers, the spine is nicely decorated, with a tooled leather appearance in place, some gold lettering wear. It has decorative inside papers, and many pictures you will enjoy. The volumes appears to be complete, and has an index for several pages, and then separate numbered pages in other sub-sections as well. It is very easy, and interesting reading, great for quick reference, or more in depth study. Design for young people, I find the writing educational and interesting as an adult. If you love American history, we feel confident you will enjoy owning this nice bound volume!
