Iowa City IA: State Historical Society of Iowa, 1914. First Edition. Hardcover. Good + / No Dustjacket. Item #006391
Pages crisp and clean except for a small ink stamp at the front free endpaper and a little toning at the endpapers and page block edges; binding square and tight, though the front hinge is shaken and shows a bit of net. Hard cover is mildly darkened at the spine, has a tiny tear in the cloth at the top front edge, and shows rubbing and softening at the spine ends and lower free corners and a few spots of finish loss front and back, otherwise excellent. This volume continues the study of the early Iowan education system, with three chapters dedicated to the three major postsecondary institutions at that time. Chapters are on the State University of Iowa, the Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, and the State Teachers College.
