A Practical System of Modern Geography/Google Books
Another interesting geography book, pre-Civil War. It's actually general enough to still be of use, and interesting for historical period study. The language suggests middle elementary school, easy to read and understand. Lovely illustrations throughout which could be used for projects and time lines. Comprehension questions included.
