About this Item

The title page proclaims this to be an "accurate biographical record of prominent men in all walks of life who have achieved success in their chosen vocations," and so forth. It does contain hundreds of short entries with information about the men listed. Original black cloth covers with heavy stamped embossed decorations on the front and back, gold lettering and decorations on the front and on the spine. All edges bright gilt. The spine is lightly faded and the gilt lettering no longer bright. 656 numbered pages. Decorative end papers. This copy is especially interesting because of several short documents carefully kept between the covers: apparently in 1912 and 1913 a man from Brunswick, Missouri, was unhappy with the listing he received in a volume from the publishers of this work yet he paid for a listing in the Men of 1912. This copy is in exceptionally good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 001621
