Chicago: Charles H. Kerr & Company, 1917. Hardcover. 168p., very good first edition, original dark blue cloth slightly edge worn with gilt lettering & decoration still visible, frontispiece and a few small illustrations, previous owner's blind stamp on title page, light glue remnants on front paste down.
"In this little book I have sought, in a series of stories or sketches, to present on the first steps in human progress as elaborated by Lewis J. Morgan in his brilliant work on Ancient Society. If they stimulate the young folks to a more comprehensive study of the struggles of a primitive man and the causes of his slow but steady advance, they shall have fulfilled their purpose." - p. 8.
