This original 1842 publication includes a detailed description and physical geography of the State of Vermont as well as elaborate descriptions (and more than 200 original engravings) of its animals and plants, including their history, description, and general characteristics. Individual chapters describe the quadupeds, birds, reptiles, fishes, invertebrates, and botany of the State.

In addition, however, this publication includes an "appendix" of 1853 which, with more than 300 pages, is larger than the original publication. In this section, the author elaborates on the natural history of the state and supplements it with a detailed description of its civil history, including sections dedicated to the Indian and Colonial Wars, the settlement and controversy with New York, the Revolutionary War, legislative proceedings, political institutions, education and literature, religious institutions, and native Indian inhabitants.
Note: This book is also among the 10 volumes in our popular Compendium of New England Gazetteers, which is available at 66% OFF the regular retail price of the individual books if purchased separately.
The last section of the book is Thompson's Gazetteer of Vermont with "topographical and historical descriptions of all of the counties, towns, rivers, mountains, &c., alphabetically arranged." Of particular interest to researchers, it frequently includes short biographies of the town founders, early settlers, ministers, and other prominent citizens.
