Donald Ogden Stewart in his Preface writes " Mr. H.G.Wells, in his "Outline of History" was of necessity forced to omit the narration of many of the chief events in the History of these United States. Such omisions I have in this brief volume endeavored to supply. And as American History can possibly best be written by Americans and as we have no H.G.Wells, I have imagined an American History as written conjointly by a group of our most characteristic literary figures.D.O.S. 230 pages 8vo - over 7.75" - 9.75" tallImages : (Click image see see full size)
