1883 Ohio School Geography Book Eclectic Series W/Maps


I am pleased to offer an antique New Eclectic Series Complete Geography school book printed in the late 1800’s.  This is the “Ohio Edition” and was distributed by The American Book Company.  The book opens to show an attached label on the inside cover that reads “Property Of The Board Of Education, Springfield, Ohio” with student names hand written beginning September 2, 1895.  The book includes many pages of differing sized color maps from around the world, most dated 1883.  The full-page map of Ohio is dated 1877.  Other maps include Africa, America, Europe, Japan, Mexico, Australia, China, and many more.  There is also a double-page map of the United States dated 1883.  Along with the numerous maps are pages of information on each area as well as beautiful engraved illustrations throughout.  Book measures 13″ X 10 1/2″.

This rare piece is in great condition considering age.  Most maps are still bright and colorful and would be beautiful framed.  The cover shows wear and fading but is legible.  The spine is completely worn but the cover is still loosely attached.  There are a few missing pages as well as some tears to the page edges, and a few pages show water stains.  Still wonderful considering that many students were educated with this piece over 100 years ago.  Would make a fine addition to any collection.

Please see pictures and email with any questions.  International winners will be emailed with shipping costs.
