Angle, Paul M. (ed)  
Chicago History (Volume IV, Number 7; Spring, 1956)
 Picture
Publisher: Chicago Historical Society, 1956 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Very Good to Near Fine. Soft cover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "Having been founded on April 24, 1856, the Chicago Historical Society is now celebrating its centennial. In considering how its quarterly, Chicago History, might play a part in the festivities, the Society hit upon a cleven and useful idea. It was decided to devote this year's four issues to compact and highly readable historical sketches of 1856 from four points of view in the following order: I. The World; II. The United States; III. Illinois; IV. Chicago. Under the capable hand of the Society's Director, Historian Paul M. Angle, the series has been presenting history in a form that is easy to grasp and pleasant to read. Each successive installment shortens the focus. Each, though independent and complete in itself, builds background in depth for the fourth subject - the grand climax of the series, and the Society's primary concern: Chicago in 1856. The issue of Chicago History bound in covers here deals with events in our national history worth looking back upon.." Illustrated. Pages 193-224. Book is in VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE condition.

Bashing Chicago Traditions: Harold Washington's Last Campaign

Publisher: Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1989..

Very lightly rubbed, corner of one leaf creased. DJ has 2 small (under 5 mm) tears to top edge, light edge wear; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "This study of Harold Washington's mayoral years is intended as neither a paean of praise nor a critical jeremiad. Instead, [the authors] render an objective analysis by examining both the positives and the negatives in the Washington story, painting a 'warts-and-all' picture that does not mistake the blemishes for the whole picture."
