McKinley and the Great Issues of 1896 (21 chapters and 501 pages, with a frontispiece and 30 photographs), which is widely available. However, in 1897, following William McKinley's election to the presidency, Edgewood Publishing hurried into print this updated publication, with a new cover and title: The Great Battle for Sound Money Led by Wm. McKinley (23 chapters and 518 pages, with a frontispiece and 36 photographs). The two additional chapters found here are: Chapter 22: McKinley's Inaugural Address: A Lofty Appeal to All Patriotic Americans for the Prompt Solution of the Great and Pressing Problems of the National Government and Chapter 23: McKinley's Cabinet: Wise and Distinguished Men Who will Aid in the Affairs of State. The 6 additional photographs are of members of the new administration: Joseph M'Kenna, Attorney General; Lyman J. Gage, Secretary of the Treasury; Russell A. Alger, Secretary of War; James A. Gary, Postmaster General; John D. Long, Secretary of the Navy; and James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture. Extremely scarce.
