DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
This booklet was originally written in 1915 to meet the demand for a simple statement of the characteristics of our principal national parks. Previous to its publication there had been no pamphlet for popular distribution except information bulletins of individual parks confined largely to details of travel.
The first edition, unillustrated, was issued in the autumn of 1915 in an edition of 3,000 copies. The second edition, somewhat amplified and freely illustrated, was issued May, 1916. Its original printing order for 1,000 copies was increased to 10,000, then to 100,000, then to 300,000, while still in the press. A total of 400,000 copies has been issued.
The third edition is enlarged to include all national parks.
