This is the authors copy of William Dehertburn Washington, presented to Dr John H Finley, signed and dated March 9th, 1912..I would first like to focus on the author and the person he presented this book to....from my research, William DeHertburn Washington was the great-great-great nephew of George Washington and was well known in the Washington house...he was said to have looked much like George Washington..his father was Lewis W Washington...Dr John H Finley had a long & distinguished career with honorary degrees from over 30 colleges & universities and received 13 decorations from 12 governments...he attended Knox College in Galesburg Illinois (my hometown), received 2 degrees there, was a valedictorian and was Knox College president from 1892-94..he moved to New York where he held numerous high racking positions during his lifetime...

This book by William DeHertburn Washington "Progress and Prosperity" the old world and its remaking into the new..the story of the medieval of development..the building of empires in America, the world's wonderland, copyright 1911, published by the National Educational Publishing Co...contains a vast amount of informative information with over 1200 black & white illustrations...book has no front cover, not sure if it was removed to add to the presentation page, this page has a different texture feel from the pages within the book..the authors copy page and the page after has the bottom right corner missing which appears to have been intentionally cut....there is some wear to the spine and back cover....book is complete, contains 887 pages, all pages are attached to spine..title page has a short tear with sort of crinkle area(can be seen in first photo), there are 9 pages that each have a very tiny tear which is almost unnoticeable..there are a few pages that have tiny edge creasing..all pages are clean with minimal age toning...

great personalized book to add to your collection..
