Blue grey cover with general Jackson riding horse with sabre drawn. "John Frost, a Philadelphia school teacher turned writer [Image 8: Portrait of Frost], was born in Kennebunk, Maine, in 1800 and educated at Bowdoin and Harvard. He spent the majority of his early career as a teacher and a principal. When not engaged in the training of minds, Frost pursued his substantial literary ambitions, aspirations that did not always endear him to those of his students who were made to act as “assistants” in his various projects. Accusing Frost of manipulating their children for personal gain, several wealthy parents withdrew their financial support from his school, and he was forced to resign. Frost’s passion for teaching proved “incongruous” with his love of literature, and “literature triumphed.”[13] In the years following his resignation from teaching, John Frost produced hundreds of books for the popular market" (cliohistoryl.org); Old rough and ready series; Engravings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 183 pages

STORY OF THE WAR OF 1898., King, W. Nephew.
19 King, W. Nephew. STORY OF THE WAR OF 1898.
Peter Fenelon Collier. 1898 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fair with no dust jacket 
Large book with many black and white plates and color plates of the war. Cover is worn and soiled and some pages have foxing. Scarce first edition. Revolts against Spanish rule had been endemic for decades in Cuba and were closely watched by Americans. There had been war scares before, as in the Virginius Affair in 1873. By 1897–98, American public opinion grew angrier at reports of Spanish atrocities in Cuba. After the mysterious sinking of the American battleship Maine in Havana harbor, political pressures from the Democratic Party pushed the administration of Republican President William McKinley into a war he had wished to avoid.[8] Compromise proved impossible, resulting in the United States sending an ultimatum to Spain demanding it immediately surrender control of Cuba, which the Spanish rejected. First Madrid, then Washington, formally declared war.[9]; Photos and Illustrations; Large Folio
