This is an 1842 book of United States history, through 1815. It is unknown who compiled and wrote this book, but its publisher and publishing year are known. This was one of my first old books that I bought myself. It was at someone’s yard sale, and each book was about 5 US dollars. I thought the cover was incredibly interesting, and I love collecting history/academic books that highlight common thinking/understanding at the time of publishing. It has not been appraised, and so its monetary value is unknown. I selected it for this specific online collection because it is my second oldest book.
