Spine edges rubbed, dark gray cloth covers rubbed and titling partly gone. Brownish stain in center of pp. 46 to 71. Still satisfactory as a reading or reference copy. Frontispiece shows Gilbert Stuart's oval portrait of George Washington. Manny pastel colored maps of US. This is a genuine high-school textbook circa 1913, not a print-on-demand fascimile. Text is divided into 725 chronological topics, each about a page or half-page .Period covered extends from explorers' voyages in 15th, 16th and 17th centuries to the Taft administration. Additional rear matter includes texts of Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Numerous head-and-shoulders illustrations of U.S. leaders. Co-author Trent in a preface said the late C.K. Adams wanted a history textbook that included more favorable viewpoints about British imperialists, Confederate rebels and the importance of westward migration.

For example, they commended Theodore Roosevelt for taking military control of Cuba in 1906, noting that many Cuban planters favored complete annexation by the U.S. (Topic 695) This book was part of the Allyn and Bacon Textbook Series.
