notes

Curtis, in a letter dated May 27, 1911 wrote to the subscriber upon sending Volumes 6-8: Each volume completed and published brings me that much closer to the goal set for myself, and the fruition of my life ambition. What one can do in the months and years to come is but one of the unanswered questions of life, but the book for which the last picture is made and the final word written, becomes a certainty and a never-ending part of a record of a race. No action of mine can change it in any respect, and every finished volume of the series adds to the value of all former ones, as the structure is just that much stronger; and as each published volume comes to you, I am certain you will grasp more fully the scope of the work, as well as my plans and hopes.

Of the 222 subscriber sets, less than 100 were printed on Van Gelder Holland paper.
