Blaine: "For over a quarter of a century Mr. Blaine has taken an active part in politics, and this period comprises the most important years through which the Republic has passed. The anxieties of the war, the difficulties of reconstruction, the perplexing question of finance and public economy. Their assistance has enabled us to shed a new light on the early life and struggles of the present Republican candidate for the Presidency. The second half of the book is the biography of Blaine's Vice Presidential candidate. From the Preface for the 2nd half: "We have spared no expense in gathering other material for this work. Every fact has been carefully sifted. A visit to Southern Illinois gave us the facts of his early life. . We have been surprised at the depth of feeling manifested by the veterans of the war. We have interviewed hundreds of them, and written to many more. All seemed to take pride in consulting old letters, diaries, &c., to give us truthful statements." 712 pp. Pages are clean & unmarked. This is truly a unique book. Would someone today be able to get a biography published (before an election) of the Presidential & Vice Presidential candidates & get that book into the hands of the populous?
