Published in 1895 by John C. Winston & Co of Philadelphia, this is an oversize hardcover volume with an extremely ornate cover. There are 708 pages and it is illustrated with full page portraits of numerous "eminent statesmen, generals, noted reformers, successful men of business, distinguished literary men and famous women." There is a biography for each "giant" of the republic up to nearly the end of the 19th century - George Washington, Lincoln, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Longfellow and Vanderbilt to name a few.

Overall condition is good, with clean pages except for a name written in pencil inside the front cover. Cover wear is minor, considering the age, but there are some corner bumps. The binding is intact and the pages are tight, but the binding has separated from the cloth spine, so it is starting to get fragile and should be handled with care. Foxing is present inside the front and back cover, but light, and a few pages have minor foxing.

Considering the age and to protect it, this book will ship via USPS Priority Mail with insurance. This would be a great addition to your library or collection.
