Abstract:

Sound scholarship declares itself on every page of these volumes, making each essential for libraries of all kinds. Each volume has prefatory and introductory material, a table of county creations, a consolidated chronology, and--the bulk of the work--individual county chronologies. A table of censuses and census outline maps add the finishing touch. It's easy to see why this 40-volume project has been supported by National Endowment for the Humanities grant money and has The Newberry Library in Chicago as its headquarters; the amount of original research from primary sources must have been staggering, and the detail is just what patrons request--month, day, and year of events whenever possible; area in square miles; and so on. Derived from the U.S. Geological Survey's State Base series (1:500,000), the maps include significant detail: cities, lakes, rivers, mountains, and, sometimes, federal land survey lines. The historical county boundaries are drawn over the current map in bold black lines. This technique provides a sharp contrast between historical and current data.The volumes in this project are intended as revised and enlarged editions of the Historical Atlas and Chronology of County Boundaries, 1788-1980 (G.K. Hall, 1984).
