William Guthrie was well known during the mid-18th-century for his many contributions to world history, especially through his extensive and thorough books. As a Scottish historian, he published one of the world’s best and most popular geography texts of the 18th-century.

 

This truly impressive 1788 single-volume edition is illustrated with 20 maps! Other interesting inclusions of note:

  • Chronological table/list of world events
  • An illustration of an armillary sphere
  • Coin equivalency tables
  • An early, important description of the discovery of America – though, according to Evans, much of Guthrie’s section on America is attributed to Jedidiah Morse (Evans 27077, 28782). Sabin even notes that this work includes “much matter relating to America”.
