About our American Era History eBooks

Basically, we take antiquarian books, disassemble them, digitize them,  and then Abraham Lincolnreassemble them into a modern multimedia enhanced format that includes a variety of features, including larger text, slide shows, sounds, music, etc. Some publications include additional, supplemental material, such as movie clips, period music, supporting text, etc.

Our publications colorful, soundful, searchable, bookmarkable, printable, viewable, very readable, and enjoyable.

We create our books from antiquarian history books, and nonfiction books. Some books are actually history text books designed for students, while others are nonfiction works that have historical value by virtue of their subject matter. For instance, our publication, San Francisco Calamity by Earthquake and Fire, cannot be defined as a history booke, per se, but the historical content cannot be denied, and it is a valuable resource for historians and students, alike.

What is American Era History ?

American Era, does not mean American Only History.  It is our intent to produce publications that encompass history of civilization, during the American Era, which we have loosely defined as beginning with the period in beginning with the birth of Benjamin Franklin.

Historical Topics from a Bygone Perspective

A 'Bygone Perspective'  comes from a source that is far removed from our modern times. For instance, a history book about the civil war, written in 1910, would have a far different perspective than a modern book.

A modern text would certainly have the facts; the sequence of events; the battles; the politics, the causes, the outcomes, etc. While an 'antiquarian' history book would have the same set of facts, it also includes insight into the the 'emotions' of the war; the drama; the feelings. You'll read about heroism and joy, and sorrow and pain; it's all part of the story.

Our works, simple put, are created from those old antiquarian historical books of the past. i.e. antiquarian (antique books).

Okay, So, What is an antiquarian book ?

An antiquarian book is simply an old book; an antique book. They are rare, and out-of-print books that collectors like to own. The title page at the right is an example of an antiquarian book that was published in 1906.

The books themselves are usually delicate because of their age, and are not really suitable for reading. When we convert a book to an ebook, the contents of the book are presented in total, and include all of the original text, and photographs/illustrations. The photographs/illustrations are often presented along with the associated text, as in the original book, and also presented in a slide show(s). Often, as in the 'San Francisco Calamity by Earthquake and Fire", the original content is augmented and enhanced with additional photographs, and illustrations; commentary; music; and even some old-time movies.

Why Buy an Antiquarian eBook ?

There are a limited number of antiquarian books that exist in the world today, and that are also available to the general public. Many are very hard to find.

And if you are able to buy an old book; say one that is over a 100 years old, you probably won't sit down and read it for fear of destroying the book; they just are not sturdy enough to read. I have several books that are over 200 years old that I only occasionally peruse; I would destroy them if I were to sit down and read them.

So, a big advantage of having an antiquarian book in an ebook format is that you can, in fact, read the book without damging, or destroying the book. And the ebook is preseved for many years to come; you'll never have to worry about the pages fading, or curling, or becoming damaged, etc. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

History Buffs, Students, Teachers

I am a History Buff; a permanent Student; I love to read about history.  When I read history books, I love to study the associated pictures, and illustrations, and photographs, etc. Our publications primarily include "American Era" topics, though not necessarily American-only topics. Our publications make it easy to read through the text, and then jump to associated picture(s), with captions, and then easily return to the text. Pictures add alot to the subject, so you'll find that most our publications contain an amble amount of pictures.

You can bookmark as many pages as you like, and return at a later time. And, you can word search the publication, and then jump directly to desired page; a person doing research on a given subject would find this a valuable tool. In most cases, the reader can print-out a page of text, or a picture; a very handy feature for the researcher.

Okay, so, what would anyone want to read history from an Antiquarian book ? Why not ? In my opinion, and a big reason why I like to read them, is that they provide a unique perspective that is not available in modern, current day, re-written, re-hashed, and often,politically sanitized,  history text.

For example, in the Civil War Through The Camera, the book does tell the basic history of the war; the sequence of events, the major battles (with pictures), etc. But it also talks about honor, and idealism, and honesty, boldness, and bravery; fighting for a cause (whether a Union, or Confederate soldier); it's a very dramatic telling of the story, one that I haven't seen in modern texts, one that you probably  would not see.....

The language, and style, and the prose, are unique to the time; even some of the language, and the some words themselves are, strange; it just adds to the whole experience.

Plus.... they are simply fun to read; I know I cannot help but smile as I read through an old book, or magazine, and get a real feel for those times, and those days, long past, that were the norm of that era.

What is an eBook  ?

 

An ebook, or "electronic Book", is simply an electronic, or digital version of a book that is formatted to be viewed and read on a computer screen. Traditionally, most eBooks, are primarily text, however they often contain pictures, tables, formula's, etc.
