A Geographical Hand Book free pdf Excerpt from A Geographical Hand Book: Or, a Description of the Different Countries, With Their Several, Sub-Divisions Into Provinces, Cantons or States- As Also, a Concise Outline of the Principal Cities, Towns and Villages A full Geographical Hand Book, containing a clear description of every country, and adapted to the wants, and within the means of all classes, seems to be a desideratum in our American literature. Being aware of no publication in the English language which supplies this want, the Author has, for a considerable period of time, devoted his leisure hours to the execution of a work, designed to supply this void in our literature. He has endeavored, according to the best of his ability, to meet the demands of the time, and to adapt it not only to the use of Colleges, Academies and High Schools, but also to make it a work of interest and reference for private families, and for persons engaged in business. The value of history is admitted, but to acquire a correct knowledge of history, it is indispensable to know where to find the cities, towns or places, which on account of the great events associated with them, are mentioned in history. Geography and history are inseparable. To attempt to study history without having constant reference to Geography, is like essaying to read by moonlight- but when the light of Geography is shed upon history, its pages become illumined. The Hand Book describes the different countries and states, by giving under distinctive heads their area, population, boundaries, mountains, surface, soil, rivers, lakes, climate, products, animals, minerals, form of government, and some of the national characteristics- and in the United States, the chief curiosities, and the manufacturing and literary status of the several states, have been added. European and Asiatic countries have been treated, by noting their several divisions, or provinces into which they are sub-divided, and by describing the cities and important towns, under their proper divisions. As far as compatible with space, the association of the different cities and towns with the great events of history, and famed personages, has been uniformly kept in view. The Author has made it an object to note and describe the historical and chief objects of interest in all the large cities of the world, and also to remark for what each city or town is peculiarly distinguished. By means of a copious alphabetical index, the reader or student can at once refer to any country, province, city, town or village, thereby affording the greatest facility for constant reference.
