Scarce literature oriented pictorial map of the United States, published by the American Educational Press, Inc. and drawn by Clara Molendyk.

On the verso is a list of 105 short stories, with publication dates listed between between 1919 and 1929.

Molendyk was apparently very active in teaching methods and garnered a fair amount of attention for her ideas.  In the Chapter "Race as Color, 1939-1945," addressing the question of racial intollerance in the facsist regimes of the Axis Powers during World War II, in her book Color in the Classroom: How American Schools Taught Race, 1900-1954, author Zoe Burkholder notes:

New York City English Teacher Clara Molendyk anguished over how to teach boys and girls the "right" kind of tolerance.  Writing with Captain Edwards of the U.S. Army, Molendyk called for teaching "intelligent tolerance of minority groups who work with us inthe preservation of democracy" while advocating "intelligent hatred" toward cruelty and injustice of enemy nations.  Molendyk wanted teachers to distinguish the culture of the enemy nations from their despicable facist regimes. Thus she suggested students study "enemy" music, "enemy" art, "enemy" language and literature, in positive terms, but only if they could balance this "intelligent hatred" of politcal oppression and social injustice.
