1 Daniels, Jonathan. Frontier on the Potomac.
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1946. First Edition, First Printing, As Stated. 
Octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 262 pp. Near-Fine, with foxing (age darkening) to endpapers, in a Very Good, price-clipped dust jacket with light edgewear. From jacket: Equipped with an eye for significant detail and an ear for provocative conversation, Mr. Daniels is eminently qualified to produce a book on Washington and its inhabitants. [Here] he surveys the entire field: the executive, legislative, and judicial departments, the civil service, the diplomatic corps, the pressure groups, the military, and the press. Never pedagogic, he writes on the human level, and his trenchant appraisal of notable worthies is as readable as it is revealing. Mr. Daniels goes beyond the individuals...he strips away the gloss to reveal the bare bones of the governmental colossus itself, showing how it works and how it embodies the interests and aspirations of the American people.

8 Moley, Raymond, in collaberation with Helen M. Rocca. The Outline of Government in the United States.
Washington, D.C.: The National League of Women Voters, 1922. 
Octavo, paperbound (stiff, tan printed wrappers), 84 pp. Very Good, with light edgewear. From Foreword: The purpose of this publication is to put into a brief form the essential facts about government and politics in the United States. It aims to give information clearly and concisely in language which can be easily understood. But it has a more important purpose than this. It seeks to put the facts of government into their proper persepective, to show the relation of one set of facts to another, to indicate the various topics that belong in a study of citizenship, and by omission, the matters that do not belong in such a course. It is in fact an outline rather than a treatise. The influence of women in politics is going to be felt only in proportion to their intelligent conception of the realities of government and politics...
