Chicago: Laird & Lee Publlishers, 1905, hardcover. Cover and bottom edge of binding coming loose, although all pages are intact, 1/2 cut to back cover, pages tanned with age, some chipping and creasing to inside paste-down endpaper, good condition.

This little book is kind of a cross between a dictionary and an encylopedia, filled with fun little facts of the time. An interesting example is "Colors in Uniforms, Fatal. It appears from statistics gathered with great care by European officers that red is the most fatal color; next to that blue, then green, then brown, and, last of all, light gray. The proportions in which the colors are struck by flying missles are: Red, 12; blue, 9; green, 7; brown, 6; gray, 5."
