Very Good. No Jacket. Ex-Library. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. Ex-library with the usual library markings (if not for the library markings this copy would be graded in fine condition), overall a very clean used copy! Wonderfully well-preserved! Blue cloth with gilt on black lettering on the spine. Decorative endpapers. 311 historical pages! "A careful review of the existing Dictionary revealed to the editors that the extension of its coverage to include the facts, events and trends of our national experience during the years 1940-1960 would be a threefold task. Factual articles on a wide range of subjects which had not been thought of at the time of the Dictionary's formulation would have to be provided. Many articles would have to be extended so as to include the development of their topics over the past twenty years and to supply up-to-date statistical and bibliographical information. Finally, it was obvious that a number of major pieces, excellent at the time they were written, had become obsolete either because new research had appeared which altered the facts (as in 'Bacon's Rebellion'), or because the radical social changes which have taken place during the last two decades demanded a totally new treatment from a different point of view...."----from the Foreword.
