Bought this today for $8. I haven't found anything online about it yet. I bought it because it is full of stuff about "other" (ie; non christian) religions and whatnot. I love how inappropriate the views are when compared to societal norms of today.
The copyright date is 1888 but I don't know the exact date of publish. I think it is right around there because of the typeset used on the illustrations pages. They still refer to Persia and Mohammedans.
I plan on reading the whole thing.

Any info would be appreciated.

    A Google search turns up some copies, such as http://www.bonanza.com/booths/farmersdaughter/items/What_the_World_Believes_Today_by_Countries_George_J__Hagar
