SCHOOL TEXT BOOKS

"ABRAHAM LINCOLN"-(For Sixth Year).

American Book Company...

$0.72

This thrilling story of the most American of all our Presidents is much more than an ordinary biography. It traces briefly the progress of our government from the time of its organization to the end of the great Civil War, and it makes plain the causes and motives which brought about the tremendous crisis. Considerable space is given to Lincoln's boyhood and youth, but the book is free from wearisome details, as well as from political bias or sectional prejudice.
