Since my last “Behind the Stacks” entry on R. C. Shimeall’s A Complete Ecclesiastical Chart, I have been noticing more charts, awkward formats, and too-large items within our special collections. As a redux of that post, here featured is another circular chart of history and yet another exhaustive production from Shimeall. Enjoy the images!

One thought on “Behind the Stacks: You had me at “charts””
Hi there, I own a copy of the same chart as above but mine seems to be dated 1831, and is a little different to yours ( the colours are slightly different, mine has a painted pink border etc). I’d love to know more about it if you have any information at all. Kind regards, Grace ( New Zealand).
