Madison County, Iowa





A. T. Andreas' "Illustrated Historical Atlas of the State of Iowa," published in 1875, was the most monumental Iowa history up to that time. As a reference tool it far eclipses all other volumes. As a matter of fact, nothing that has been printed since 1875 would begin to include, as does Andreas, the varied aspects of the Iowa scene from the beginnings of white settlement down to 1875.

Of the 596 pages of this colossal undertaking, 361 are pictorial in character. The remaining 233 pages are divided as follows: Biographical Sketches 31; Iowa, Topography, Geology, Climate, 4; State History 26; County Histories 84; Patrons of the Atlas 56; Business Directory of Patrons 18.

Between 1865 and 1885 Andreas published, independently or with associates, approximately thirty county and state atlases.
