Author: A. Cosmopolitan
Illustrator: Thomas Nast

Description: Brown cloth boards with gilt lettering on front. Light wear to head and foot of spine and corners; rear cover shows a little bit of soiling. 72 illustrations by Thomas Nast. 82, plus [2] pp. ads. 7.5 x 5 inches.

A satire on American politics, published on the heel of the Civil War, casting major players as school children. This is basically an American analogue of Henry William Pullen's The Fight at Dame Europa's School, which satirized the Franco-Prussian War. Both were published by Francis B. Felt in 1871 and illustrated by Thomas Nast (1840-1902).

Miss Columbia's Public School addresses the Civil War, the KKK, the Jesuits, Tammany Hall, the Democratic Party's political machine, and other political and social tensions of the time, both national and international.
