This is the 1918 textbook provided by the United States government to immigrants studying for the citizenship test. This copy belonged to John Lofgren, a Swedish mathematician who lived in Chicago. The book covers the basics of American history, geography and civics, as well as "Fundamentals for the American Home," such as how to cook American-style food, housekeeping, hygeine, and more. Very good. Item #1041
