The election of 1896. This book covered the events of the day and the candidates of all the parties involved in the election.
This book was one of many that came out on all the candidates and issues of the day. In an age where there was no radio, TV, Internet, and just the local and daily newspaper. It was hard to learn about many of the people running for office. This was one of the books to service that need and were quite popular. However, after the election who needed the book? They would then go through a pretty fast tossing out period. So they are not as common as you would think. Today they are quite collectible.
