New York: Harper & Brothers, 1899. Quarto. Item #011418
1645 combined pages in two volumes of what is one of the greatest compendiums of American History. Facsimile signatures of the signers of the Constitution, many others of Washington, his bodyguards; Civil War documents, etc. Profusely illustrated. A nice copy bound in original maroon cloth with the gilt Indian hatchet and lettering on the spines. Stamped as copy of the former Chicago Chronicle newspaper. A thin crack on the inner hinge is all that keeps this from being a fine copy.
