Title: Education for Efficiency and the New Definition of the Cultivated Man
Author: Eliot, Charles W.
Published by Houghon Mifflin Company, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. (1909)

This is an antique education book from the early twentieth century. Some wear to spine and cover. Pages show light yellowing and some foxing on inside covers. Writing on inside cover. Outer cover has beautifully embossed. See photos for closeups. For its age, this little book has held up well with very few chips and normal wear to the pages. I hope you enjoy this small vintage book in your collection of old and antique decorative books.
