AMERICAN STATESMEN SERIES / No. 8512-W / FREDERICK HALE / A Biographical Sketch

Frederick Hale (1874–1963) was Senator from Maine for several decades in the early part of the 20th century. If his life story and achieve­ments put you in mind of other well-known political figures before or since . . . well, there’s not a thing I can do about that.

The cover is intended to make you think that this splendid work was just one of a series of similar biographies. But as it turns out, it’s all part of the joke.
