The World's Progress: Dictonary of Dates, Edited by G.P. Putnam, Copyright 1850
Here is a remarkable antique book entitled "The World's Progress: A Dictionary of Dates with Tabular Views of General History and A Historical Chart." This volume was edited by G.P. Putnam and published in 1850 in New York by the editor. It includes an incredible hand-colored, fold-out lithograph chart entitled "A Chart of History." The chart, and the book that contains it, are in very good condition, and appear to only have been lightly used. The inside covers feature beautiful orange marbled paper. There is a handwritten note on a blank page, dated 1853.
