This is an
amazing vintage book and what I believe is a Salesman Sample for a set of 8 books similar to encyclopedias. The graphics are stunning. There are black and white photographs, drawing color graphics, stories, facts, poems, verses, history and much more.
This is somewhat of a homeschool type book. "The new method of visual instruction applied to child interest school subjects and character building."
This vintage reader book has about 250 unpaginated pages covering
children and religion, myths chosed from the Greek classics retold in picture and story (beautifully illustrated), children's stories, verses, poems, manners and etiquette, dramatization and acting, the world of nature, the world and its people, the southern states, government, inventions (trains, Hindenburg, Golden Gate Bridge), art, the military and many other topics.
The condition of this book is very good. It is soft cover no dust jacket. It has a leatherette or similar cover,
soft corners, tight binding. A great vintage book for any book lover.
