Since we are geographers with an interest in American history, perhaps it was inevitable that we would develop an interest in the history of geography. Many years ago, before we knew each other, we each began building a collection of geography books published before the Civil War. Eventually, each of us would own one of the country’s largest personal collections of early American geographies.

American geographers 1784–1812: A bio-bibliographical guide. The geographic revolution in early America: Maps, literacy, & national Identity. Neil Smith debunks that assumption, offering an incisive argument that American globalism had a distinct geography and was pieced together as part of a powerful geographical vision.

That the inauguration of the American Century brought a loss of public geographical sensibility in the United States was itself a political symptom of the emerging empire.

The first major work to identify the original generation of American geographers―teachers, writers, surveyors, cartographers, engravers, and others―who made significant contributions to the field of geography during the early years of the republic. As such, it represents a powerful research tool for scholars interested in learning about this group and the products of their labors.
