Great Men and Women in German!
This is an anthology of the lives of great men and women (German and American) for German-American children. The eye-catching chromolithographed cover features an obelisk inscribed with the names of famous men as a destination for tourists including a mother with her son, a Native American, a gentleman in top hat, and two men with broad-brimmed hats who seem to be recently arrived immigrants. The biographies include contemporary celebrities like Harriet Beecher Stowe, Peter Cooper, and Ulysses S. Grant. The biography of Lincoln features a photo-engraved copy of an early likeness of the president without his trademark beard.
Adopted by Babette Gehnrich and Matthew Shakespeare
