About this Item

Octavo. (iv), 208pp., + 6 maps. First edition. Frontispiece, engraved title page, title-page vignette, and numerous text figures from engravings. Contains sixty brief chapters that cover all essential information about the United States for school children. Roughly half the book is devoted to the physical characteristics, while the remainder touches upon the social makeup and historical development of the country since independence. With an index of questions and six engraved maps at the end. In the original binding of calf-backed illustrated boards. Boards are quite rubbed and chipped, upper portion of front hinge cracked, but holding, and first few signatures resewn. A nice copy of a surprisingly uncommon Peter Parley title.
