First Lessons in Geography for Young Children

by S. Augustus Mitchell

Very scarce 1859 publication designed as an introduction to the author's primary geography. Filled with wonderful maps, some color, of the eastern and western hemispheres, North America, the U.S., the eastern, western, middle and southern states, the territories and more. Additionally, the sections include questions relating to the specific geographical region and the details of their physical features as well as questions relating to historical and cultural features that can be used as exercises such as Has the Ocean different names in different parts of the world? What is the shape of the Earth? By what three races chiefly is North America inhabited? Whence did the white people of North America come originally? By what European was America discovered? What is an Empire? What is a Republic? What is said of the Indians in the United States? Have any of the Indians been civilized? What is said of the rest of the Indians? What is a Lake? What is a Mountain?What is said of the wild animals? What is said of the prairie grass? What dreadful calamities sometimes occur? 72 pages. 5.75" by 7".
