Hardcover. Conditoin: Good-. 1936. D, Aappleton-Century Co. Many Illustrations by Carle Michel Boog aand M.S. Wright. Ex-Libris (from library of Helen Chillman)

An interesting look at the history of the world, most fascinating for it's chilling predictions in the last chapter regarding a destructive weapon like the atom bomb and the coming of the second world war. The book gives a stark warning as to what might happen if lessons were not learned from WWI and we did not outgrow our childlike behavior.
