About this Item

644 pages. Illustrations, frontis illustration. Text somewhat darkened. Pencil notation inside front flyleaf. Boards somewhat soiled and worn. Edward Sylvester Ellis (April 11, 1840 - June 20, 1916) was an American author who was born in Ohio and died at Cliff Island, Maine. Ellis was a teacher, school administrator, journalist, and the author of hundreds of books and magazine articles that he produced by his name and by a number of noms de plume Subtitled: Containing the lives of the Republican and Democratic candidates for President and Vice-President, biographical sketches of the leading men of all parties, the story of famous campaigns of the past, history of political parties, lives of our former Presidents, together with a full presentation of the live questions of the day, including the tariff, gold and silver, Cuba, Armenia, Venezuela, Monroe Doctrine, etc., by the following noted authors: Edward S. Ellis, A.M., Thomas R. Reed, William L. Wilson, John Sherman, J. K. Upton, and others. Over 100 portraits and illustrations. From the Preface: This has been an eventful year both at home and abroad. A Presidential year is always an interesting one, but this time it is unusually so because the issues are more clearly defined and are of more personal importance and interest to every citizen. Every individual, however humble, will be affected either for good or bad by the policy of the Government in regard to Silver and the Tariff. Then the whole world has been stirred by the cruel massacre of the Armenians and the struggle of the Cubans for liberty. Only recently this whole country and Europe were greatly excited by a threatened war with England in reference to Venezuela. A book which covers all these subjects and which at the same time furnishes biographies of the candidates for President and Vice-President of both the Republican and Democratic parties, and also biographies of the great political leaders all over the country, cannot fail to be unusually interesting to all the citizens of this country. In the preparation of the book we have had the assistance of several of the great leaders of the different political parties. We believe the careful reader will recognize the earnest effort made to be fair to all parties, and to furnish reliable information. Bookseller Inventory # 52736
