Adams’ Chart of History was written by Sebastian Adams and first published in 1871. This classic work is based on Archbishop James Ussher’s definitive historical overview, The Annals of the World, beginning with creation in 4004 B.C. and ending in 1870 with America’s 19th president, Rutherford B. Hayes.

The vintage reproduction of the most famous illustrated timeline of world history features detailed, full-color drawings of major historical periods from Adam and Eve to the late 19th century, complete with Adams’ handwritten commentary throughout. It’s available in casebound format for libraries or as unbound 13 x 28-inch panels for mounting on classroom and Sunday School walls.

Included with the Adams’ Chart of History is the 60-page key to the original 1871 timeline. A modern Teacher’s Guide helps make the most of Adams’ Chart and is filled with suggested activities, sample skill tests, and ideas. This guide takes teachers and students alike deep into the timeline while highlighting features and providing discussion topics that engage students of all ages.
