True Stories from Ancient History chronologically arranged from the creation of the world to the death of Charlemagne, by a Mother, Philadelphia, Porter & Coates Alta Edition, circa 1886 as there is an owner stamp dated 1886 on a front free endpaper. Condition is good to very good, the only major flaw is that the frontispiece and title page joint is cracking. The frontispiece is a neat little picture that I used in my War Elephants book because it shows elephants pulling a Roman chariot. Book measures 8x6 inches, 326 pages.
I will be listing hundreds of ancient history books from my own library over the next two months, some on Christianity, many are ancient military, customs, specific countries (Greece, Rome, Persia), many are new some are quite antique. I used many of these for my book on War Elephants (Praeger 2006) but now I am moving toward other subjects and can reduce my stockpile. There may be books on other subjects also, but most will be ancient history. I am happy to hold books for you for combined shipping cost, though you might need to pay every week or two just so I can keep the records straight. I do also list books for other people, they may not want to wait, so if you do not see this blurb at the bottom, it is not my book and may have to ship separately or at least not wait more than a week to pay.
