Putnam’s Sons, The Knickerbocker Press New York 1913. Originally published in the summer of 1912. This copy is the Second Edition, with An Addenda to the Original Preface. Illustrated bookplate on the front fixed endpaper of Cornelius D. Ehret” and “Elizabeth S. Ehret The author, James M. Xxv, [1], 664 p. Tissue-guarded frontispiece, 2 in-text maps, one in color and one black and white, and a large color folded sketch map of the Philippines on the inside of the back cover; 23 cm. Burgundy cloth, with gilt-stamped spine title. Top page edges gilt. To have gone out to the other side of the world with an army of invasion, and had a part, however small, in the subjugation of a strange people, and then to see a new government set up, and, as an official of that government, watch it work out through a number of years, is an unusual and interesting experience, especially to a lawyer. What seem to me the most valuable things I learned in the course of that experience are herein submitted to my fellow-countrymen, in connection with a narrative covering the whole of the American occupation of the Philippines to date. This book is an attempt, by one whose intimate acquaintance with two remotely separated peoples will be denied in no quarter, to interpret each to the other. How intelligent that acquaintance is, is of course altogether another matter, which the reader will determine for himself. The task here undertaken is to make audible to a great free nation the voice of a weaker subject people who passionately and rightly long to be also free, but whose longings have been systematically denied for the last fourteen years, sometimes ignorantly, sometimes viciously, and always cruelly, on the wholly erroneous idea that where the end is benevolent, it justifies the means, regardless of the means necessary to the end [Opening lines of the Preface]. Book is in Very Good Plus Condition: complete and intact, with all three maps; pages bright, clean, tight, and unmarked; some light scattered tiny corner creasing; light soiling on the front cover; top page edge gilt faded in spots; light wear at the corners.
