About this book

Over 100 historical engravings are included.

Reader's Thoughts


Very informative, but not a fast read.


I wanted to like this, but it is unfortunately too much a product of its time. What I really want to read is the updated, edited, and shortened version, without the bigotry.


This book is SO freakin' good. Seriously, if I'd had this as a history text in High School I would know a thing or two worth knowing... and be hugely entertained in the process.On the other hand, finding it now is like finding a treasure map: the map itself being the treasure.
