North and South America

The Delaware Historical Society owns many rare books concerning geography. Each geography is a snap shot of the world in the year it was made. Below are excerpts from a nicely illustrated book from 1848 entitled A Pictorial History of America Embracing Both the Northern and Southern Portions of the New World by S.G. Goodrich. It was published in Hartford, Connecticut by House & Brown.

This Old Book appears on this blog every Wednesday morning.
