Late 19th century introduction to the US Congress and its workings, geared toward young adults and not-so-young adults.

Internally much better, with hinges intact at the endpapers but with some separation before the half-title, with binders' cloth visible. Endpapers soiled, frontis foxed, remaining pages very clean and free from chips, tears or markings.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fair. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Edition.
