This edition‘s mustard-yellow cover is ornately decorated with gold borders and designs of palm trees, bows, and rose bouquets to surround and emphasize the centered book title. Anne Hollingsworth Wharton (1845-1928) published over a dozen works relating to history and movements in the Americas. In 1891, Wharton was made Historian of The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America.
