But wait, here is a presidential biography for children from 1893, far ahead of its time:
Life of George Washington in Words of One Syllable.
|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.|
Nice cigarette burn on cover as mom refreshed her martini putting little Tommy to bed. Cursive inscription inside front cover "... from Grammer, Sept. 1974." Apparently the world was bathed in innocence at this time.
