New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1904. Cloth Hardcover. 12mo. Good + / No Dustjacket. Item #072749
Crisp, clean pages except for age-toning at endpapers, a charming pencil note at the end of the final page, and four adhesive spots tipping a homemade bookplate to the front pastedown; full pale brown cloth binding shows a bump and surface wrinkle at the right front and has modest softening and shelfwear at the spine ends and corners, otherwise excellent. John and Jacob Abbott produced a tremendous number of nonfiction titles for young readers, including biographies of leaders, often reprinted (as with this book) in a uniform set for school and home use. 302pp. w/ various engraved illustrations.
