Cloth, small 4to, 139,  pp. From the publisher's description: "The Grolier Club set as a goal establishing the hundred most influential American books published before 1900. To this end it set up a committee of three book-collectors. The books selected influenced not only the life of culture of the U.S., but the form of government and the literature of foreign lands. For each book the Grolier Club provides a bibliographical description, and a brief description explaining the importance of the title. From The Constitution to the Boston Cook Book, from The Federalist to Huckleberry Finn, these books comprise the high spots of book collecting for Americans. The Grolier Club catalogue will remain a standard work so long as this canon of American literature continues to reign. " Fine. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-39408
