New Geographical and Historical Grammar by Thomas Salmon

Book Description

Thomas Salmon's "New Geographical and Historical Grammar" is a representative of an 18th-century geographical grammar. In this, Salmon's most popular and successful work, historical and geographical information is arranged spatially with the continents described in order and by nation-state. Originally published in 1749 the work was enormously popular in its day, going through 13 editions by the time of Salmon's death in 1767. Reprinted here in an enlarged and improved edition, Salmon's "Grammar" is still of enormous importance to scholars today and is unique compared with other grammars of this time for the detail with which he treats historical matters. Salmon's "Grammar" also demonstrates the essential continuities in the images through which Europeans represented the nations of the globe, thereby creating that sense of superiority so transformative to the modern world. With this blend of enlightened and traditional ideas, the work offers historians a fascinating window onto the world of the English enlightenment and onto the paradoxes of Enlightened culture.
