A tight, fairly attractive second printing of this teacher's A to Z (literally, Agriculture to Zoology), soup to nuts guidebook featuring chapters on every conceivable subject taught -- with front flyleaf bearing the Friends of the Chicago Public Library 1986 membership card of Ralph G. Newman (1912-98), founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop and one-time president of the Chicago Public Library. Interesting copy of an uncommon title usually found in worn, inferior condition.
