Welcome to the first Antique Book put on the Web!
Courtesy Robert Thibadeau of the Universal Library Project at Carnegie Mellon University. We also thank Evan Benoit who was the first Antique Book bookmaster. Without the able scanning and programming work of Evan Benoit, Antique Books would not have come to be.

The following pages contain the full content of "The History of New England", published in 1847, which was written as part of a series designed to introduce people to the history of America.

While the much of its content is of questionable truth, it is, by its nature, a valuable insight into the beliefs of the day. At the same time, it is a lively narrative, which we hope you will find enjoyable.

The book is presented using techniques which allow for full color reading with minimum download time.

    "I think that the book is very interesting, however it has been quite difficult for me to get the "page turner" part to work Perhaps it is this old machine that I am using while my good one is in the shop! I plan to check you out again when I get my other machine back." -- You have to have cookies turned on or the page turner doesn't work. This just keeps track of your current page.

  • D Webster
    "This is a wonderful idea It preserves the original and allows others to read it without damaging it by the use. Are there other links of this nature that can be added to your site? The material content is refreshing to read as well. It gives an account of history that isn't muttled with todays political correctness and portrays true religion as a pursuit and normal part of every day life."

  • Riccardo Cariaggi
