About this Item

Octavo. rust cloth over tan cloth lettered in gilt, pictorial end papers, top edges gilt, deckled fore edge; rust colored publisher's slip case (fine). Frontispiece portrait along with other photographs and a drawing. "It is because Edward Everett Ayer belongs in the company of famous men - wise and glorious in his time - that we here record his deeds . the incidents in the life of Mr. Ayer have more than private and local interest. His activities continually throw light upon crucial and dramatic events in our developing national life. He had part in the epic westward movement . he played an honorable role in . the Civil War . the railroad expansion in the West . and [was a] generous supporter of culture and the fine arts in America. It has been the author's attempt to supplement Mr. Ayer's own vivid accounts of significant experiences in his life by statements and quotations drawn from the men who were in immediate association with him" - from Preface.
