About this title

Synopsis:

Adams Chart of History is a 23' long by 27" tall, illustrated timeline of biblical and world history, covering a 6,000-year time period from the biblical creation to the late 19th century (1800s). The 21 full-size panels of this fold-out chart can be viewed in book form or opened as a continuous timeline to the full 23 feet. Seeing history displayed in this brilliant "at-a-glance" format helps us to fully understand and contextualize that every person or event is part of a much grander picture and purpose.

Features:

  • Full color illustrations and handwritten commentary
  • Highlights nations, kingdoms, significant people, events, battles, poets, historians, inventions, and literary works
  • Detailed chronological biblical history
  • Hand glued, heavy duty 12pt deluxe matte cardstock paper for durability
  • Hard cover to protect the timeline and for easy storage when not in use
  • Based on James Ussher's classic work The Annals of the World

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
