Poor in Pictorial Boards jacket. This entire book is written in one syllable words, when they are more they are hy-phen-ate-ed, so you can learn the lies and whitewashed untruths of our beleaguered nation one 1/4 word at a time. George is depicted on the cover standing in a very small boat (! ) with a couple other guys standing also, wearing funny hats and crossing some river full of very large chunks of ice. First interior color plate shows a young pansy with a frilly neck-tie, axe at feet, a skinny tree half cut to his left, being scolded by a large man dressed in tights with a bow in his hair hiding a riding crop from boy's view. Caption is "Early love of truth." Binding is loose, color prints and pages loose, appears complete, heavily frayed at edges. Nice cigarette burn on cover as mom refreshed her martini putting little Tommy to bed. Cursive inscription inside front cover "...from Grammer, Sept. 1974." No publication date inside, but cover illustration is copyrighted 1893.
