for the prefect gift for that hard to please history lover?
Might we suggest giving them a copy of the Searchable Chambers' Book
of Days on a CD? Just $25
As noted on the opening page, Chambers' 1869 The Book of Days
is one of my most prized possession.
It's detailed descriptions of key historical events, the life
and times of people, both great and infamous, and long
forgotten customs of cultures from every corner of the world,
is a must-read for anyone aspiring to understand history as
our forefathers saw it.
As I read the book for my
third time, I found myself always yearning to flip back to a
prior article on a person or event mentioned in the current
article I was reading, unfortunately, that often proved harder
then expected. Not anymore.
Throughout the year long
effort of putting the book on-line, I've come to appreciate
having the Book of Days stored right on my own computer, where
pages appear in a flash, and searches take a fraction of the
time they do on the web. The extensive hyperlink of the
electronic version of the book allows me to jump back and
forth, as Chambers might have done had he been reading the
stores to me himself, making every article in the book that
much more worthwhile.
Now you can experience that same feeling with the CD version of the
Searchable Chambers' Book Of Days for just $25.
additional fee, we can also personalize a copy of the CD for
you by adding in the birth and death dates of loved ones and
friends, for more information e-mail us at
