From A Brief History of the United States by Joel Dorman Steele and Esther Baker Steele (1885)

After the jump, the provenance of this particular edition.

Apparently it was presented to Princeton University by Virginia-native Woodrow Wilson, who indeed received a bachelor’s degree in 1879 (ranked thirty-eighth in a class of 167) before attending the University of Virginia for a year. This does not, however, appear to be Wilson’s own signature.
