As many of you know, I love viewing old maps. A component of this love for old maps is the love of old books about maps.
In the screenshots below, I have included some interesting maps and diagrams from the book, World Geography by John Hodgdon Bradley, which was published in 1948. This was a textbook for secondary education.
I highly encourage you to read A Note to the Teacher. Mr. Bradley was very insightful in his pointing out that viewing maps and illustrations is a far better tool to teach students about geography than simply providing statistical numbers.
I will publish some more screenshots from the second half of the book in the next week.
