George Washington's World
Author: Foster, Genevieve, Illustrated by: Foster, Genevieve
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1944 New York

Book. Book condition: Good. Fair to Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "A quick glance through this book, stopping especially to look at the dramatic and arresting double-page illustrations before each section, will show what it does for the period during which the United States of America was born. through her two children of high-school age, Mrs. Foster discovered how difficult it is for young people to visualize the events of a period in their relationship to each other. With unbounded enthusiasm she set to work to give a picture of World events during Washington's life. It was a long and strenuous piece of work, but her enthusiasm never flagged. One feels this as one reads the book, and the result is one of the most distinctive and unusual - we hope one of the most useful - book we have published. An interesting feature is that the reader may follow the story of one character through the book; it is indexed to make this possible. Indeed, one can follow the characters through the pictures along, seeing Napoleon grow from a tiny infant in the cradle to the would-be conqueror of Europe; seeing Benjamin Franklin grow old in the service of his country." Nicely illustrated. 348 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in FAIR to GOOD condition; mostly complete, but wear and chipping to edges.

Price: US$25.00. Quantity available: 1.
