Published by 'The National Publishing Co., Philadelphia, Penna., United States' in 18(?), the Pictorial History of the World is a "full and authentic account(s) of every nation of ancient and modern times".
In fairly good condition considering its age, the binding is in need of repair and the front and back covers show signs of wear. There are 1298 pages plus the index.
Full of patina, this book would be a great decor piece, but don't be afraid to open it! There are more than 650 engravings of battles and historical scenes. It truly is a work of art.
