WHEN DEWEY CAME TO MANILLA   James Otis  Exc  1st ed WHEN DEWEY CAME TO MANILLA   James Otis  Exc  1st ed


“WHEN DEWEY CAME TO MANILA – Or Among the Filipinos” is a great vintage boy’s book on Admiral Dewey and the American occupation of the Philippines during the Spanish-American War.  Written by James Otis, one of the masters of prose for boys. It was a favorite of mine growing up, and it endures as a very fine book for the reader of any age.

 

The book is in very fine condition. It was published in 1899 by Dana Estes & Company of Boston. The book is a first edition. The binding and cover are in very good condition and they are tight. The pages are clean, the paper crisp and the book is richly illustrated. The pages are firmly attached to the binding. The only marking in the book is the original owner’s name written in pencil on the inside cover page. A quality vintage children’s book that will be appreciated by the young reader and the collector. Please,
