In the 1830s, John Warner Barber embarked on a tour of the New England and New York, gathering geographical and historical information about every city, town and village in those states and making numerous sketches of the various scenes and landmarks along the way. He incorporated his findings and drawings into a series of books that came to be known as Barber's Historical Collections -- Historical Collections of Connecticut (1836), Historical Collections of Massachusetts (1839), and this book, HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS OF NEW YORK (1841).In the century and a half since their publication, demand for original editions of these books remains high. Historians and genealogists love them for the historical, biographical and genealogical information they impart, not to mention the numerous wood-cut engravings showing scenes of town and country as they appeared in the 1830s. HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS OF NEW YORK is loaded with information of great historical interest.
You'll find accounts of local incidents in the Revolutionary War from all over New York, Indian attacks and massacres, great fires, famous local murders, stories of daring and heroism too. Stories that were well-known to the inhabitants of these towns and villages in 1841, but which are now either forgotten or left untended on the shelves of local historical societies. Of course, the most significant feature of the book is its unparalleled collection of individual written sketches about New York's cities and towns.
In this sense, the book is similar to the gazetteers that were so popular during the 19th century. Many of the city and town profiles are accompanied by Barber's famous woodcut engravings.
The profiles for the different locales vary in length -- some are one or several pages, some one or several paragraphs (some of the tinier hamlets have only a line or two written about them). It seems the more populated the community, the more attention it received. In order to give you the most accurate description of this very rare book, I have provided some helpful details below.First, a listing of Contents, with a full accounting of all the cities, towns and villages profiled in the book. - and who routinely use books like this for specific research -- I have also compiled two summaries. The first is a summary of the 230 engravings in the book (as you'll see, the illustrations encompass a wide variety of scenes from towns throughout New York state). The second summary, while by no means complete, is a sampling of the subject matter you'll find scattered throughout the various historical sketches. Finally, at the bottom of this page, you can some of the book's engravings for yourself.
I hope you'll take a few moments to have a look.
