About this Item

Book will close its text block. Moderate rub to corners. Gilt spine titles still better than 95 percent. Original reader did a pretty good job slicing uncut bottom page edges, though a few rough edges protrude. A few also remain unopened. PON to front pastedown. 1922 printing of a 1904 book. Map showing distribution of colleges and universities in the U.S. shows fewer than 50 institutions west of the 100th parallel. 656 pp. with index. The brief chapter VII, heaping praise on Horace Mann for launching centralized, state funded schools with longer school years in Massachusetts, is titled "The Educational Revival." NOTE: Cat's Curiosities sells used books. Our Online stock is stored in a dry, temperature-controlled, tobacco-free warehouse. We attempt to identify books which have a damp or musty smell, when we sell them at all. Otherwise, buyers should assume used books have been shelved inside human habitations and have been exposed over the years to some combination of wood smoke, tobacco smoke, leather dressing, or other aromatic agents unknown to us. We offer no certificates of hypoallergenic purity. Those wishing to make symbolic gestures of support for the prohibition of tobacco and other medicinal plant extracts by hopping about and shrieking that used books "reek of tobacco" should apply elsewhere.
