Through a Scanner Partly

I've been cleaning out the book room some more lately (I'm up to rough Dewey order on the 300s) and I was looking at some of the neat stuff I have on the shelves. The thought occured that it would be fun to share some of it on the old blog, so...

Here are the front and back covers of my great-grandfather's geography textbook from 1886. (Info on 1855 edition here.) I had been meaning to play around with my scanner to capture some of these sorts of images, and after messing around with HP Photosmart Premier a little bit, voilĂ ! I'm planning on posting other stuff like this in the relatively near future. (And I had thought my 20th-anniversary high school reunion this weekend drew on artifacts from a long time ago... P.S. -- Happy birthday, MTV!)

Great images! I love old textbooks and primers. Any chance for some scans of the maps in the geography book?
