"Here is a fascinating new kind of history, a de luxe, useful volume on the American way of life. It presents a clear view of the American past, as seen through its many landmarks that symbolize our heritage from bygone days, and are identified with our history. There are several thousand such places, and from the most important of them Mr. Vanderbilt has made a representative selection of several hundred to give a panoramic view, an American Cavalcade through three and a half centuries and across 48 states."; 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall; Signed by Author
