Rare First Edition Our American Heritage A.M. Jens 186 of 1000 Circa 1940Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Unfortunately, due to the limited number of photographs allowed I cannot possibly include photos of all the pages. This is rare first edition, number 186 of 1000, of Our American Heritage. Printed in 1940, I am curious as to how the role of rising move toward global socialism & fascism, along with the war in Europe and our own social climate contributed to it's publication. It is curious that this was published 2 years prior the adoption of the Pledge of Allegiance by Congress and so all things considered, is a great example of the climate and discussions going on in our nation during this time. Anyway, a rare original 1st edition with most known copies in the hands Universities & Museums. So not a lot of opportunities for the private sector to add this publication to their collection. The only publicly available copy I could find was listed for sale for $7500.00. A really nice value for some collector somewhere.
