An encyclopedia from the late 1800's.
The book title is Standard Cyclopedia of Universal Knowledge. It is a 708 page hardcover book with 350 "fine engravings" or illustrations. The cover is an army green or gray with a red graphic and title.
The book was entered into the Library of Congress in 1897 and published by The Dominion Company of 352-356 Dearborn St., Chicago, U.S.A.
The book is full of wonderful and sometimes just plain funny information.
