Germany's Iron Chancellor

A Faithful Portrayal of the
LIFE AND CAREER OF PRINCE BISMARCK

BY BRUNO GARLEPP Translated from the German and Edited by SIDNEY WHITMAN, F. R. G. S., Author of “Imperial Germany,” “The Realm of the Hapsburgs," "Teutonic Studies,” Etc., Etc.

[graphic]

An accurate and graphic account of BISMARCK. A fitting memorial of one of the most extraordinary political careers in the history of the world.

A book that appeals not alone to the Patriot and Hero Worshipper, but to every intelligent person interested in noting the upward steps of mankind.

Throws a searching light upon the condition of European affairs during the last fifty years. The recital of the events of such a life is not commonplace.

But the text is of no more importance than the

Illustrations, which are of the highest order.
Size, 12 x 15 inches.

The book is furnished with over SEVEN HUNDRED PICTURES, chiefly from photographs, and there are TWENTY FULLPAGE COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS, many of which are copyrighted by the publishers, and ARE FOUND NOWHERE ELSE THAN IN THIS BOOK.

Among these is a pencil sketch of Bismarck on his death-bed, by the only artist whom the Bismarck family permitted to visit the death chamber.

A noteworthy feature is the HISTORICAL CORRECTNESS of the Illustrations.

“GERMANY'S IRON CHANCELLOR” stands apart from all other publications on BISMARCK.

Affords a wonderful insight into the POLICY AND CHARACTER OF ONE OF THE GREAT MAKERS OF HISTORY.

MANUAL
USEFUL
INFORMATION

[ocr errors]

HIS Manual presents in accessible form,

facts and figures of general interest to
teachers and scholars; to the man of

affairs, the student and the people at large. It contains not one useless or superfluous sentence. The grain has been sifted from the chaff; the precious metal extracted from the ore. In it will be found terse answers to thousands of questions, the solution of which is a matter of daily need to busy men. The work is designed as a compendium of useful knowledge, of problems not covered by other books, or of information that, to seek out personally, would require the possession of many volumes. The ruling idea in its preparation has been to furnish in as few words as possible such data as would be of service to men of inquiring minds, to scholars and to their instructors.
