This is a state 1944 first edition hardcover volume, no dust jacket, with 377 pages. Published in 1944 in collaboration with the heirs of the original author, it reprints sections of the original 9 volume work A History of the United States 1801 - 1817 by Henry Adams, copyright 1891. The book is in very good condition with clean, tight pages. The only markings to note are shown in the front of the book by the original owner who put his name and fraternity in there. There is a little cover wear, corner bumps and spine wear, but the pages are clean and tight and the binding is strong. Pages are slightly yellowed from age, but overall, this is a nice find for the collector and history buff.
