This work is “The World And Its People Book II. Glimpses of the World” edited by Larkin Dunton, Head Master of the Boston Normal School. This was printed by Silver, Burdett, & Co. in 1893. "This is not a formal treatise on geography. It aims to present such pictures of places and persons as will interest children, and fit them for the study of geography proper when they shall be old enough and mature enough for that work. The texts and accompanying maps are intended to give the reader those ideas which are necessary in forming geographical conceptions and definitions...Numerous poetical pieces are introduced, both to shed additional light on the text, and to cultivate the pupil's taste for literature. Lists of words for pronunciation, spelling, and definition follow the different lessons."
