Child's Gazetteer and Business Directory of Lewis County, NY for 1872 - 73
Child's Gazetteer is also useful in developing an understanding of rural life at the time, in the decade after the Civil War. What Child considered important general information (it appears as boilerplate in all his gazetteers) is interesting: "maxims of law", advice on succeeding in business, formulas for mixing peculiar substances, specific information about the states and territories and their attractiveness, and a discussion of how to claim the public lands are just a few of the subjects.
Child's Gazetteer in PDF format as a download is now available. This replaces the CD-ROM of this book, which we have discontinued. As well as the full text of the Gazetteer (all 311 pages of it -- actually, somewhat fewer than that; here's an example of a 19th century publisher cutting a few corners -- worth seeing if you're of the opinion that cutting corners is a more modern phenomenon), plus a reproduction of the particularly rare oldout map.
This volume is now available as a download. While the CD-ROM it replaced was priced at $20, we think you will appreciate that this download is only $4.50 -- with no wait for the Post Office to get it to you!
