AMERICAN BOOK COMPANY,
That are always up to date
The large number of School Geographies that we publish and the great demand for them enable us to maintain a corps of competent persons who note the latest discoveries, the continually shifting political boundaries, changes in population, etc., and the data thus secured are promptly incorporated in our text-books of geography. This is done at an expense that would not be warranted if we published only one series of geographies.
Each edition is thus carefully corrected, and editions follow each other with such frequency that the stock on hand is always fresh and of recent issue.
For accuracy and reliability, soundness of pedagogic methods, and artistic and mechanical excellence, these books take the lead.
