This book, like its companion volume, An Historical Geography of Europe 450 BC-AD 1330, seeks to examine the complex of natural and man-made features that have influenced the course of history and have been influenced by it. It follows the general pattern of the earlier volume and spans the period from the early sixteenth century to the eve of the Industrial Revolution in continental Europe, approximately 1500 to 1840.
Scotland and the Fictions of Geography: North Britain 1760-1830  (repost)

Scotland and the Fictions of Geography: North Britain 1760-1830 By Penny Fielding
English | 2009 | 248 Pages | ISBN: 0521895146 | PDF | 1 MB

Focusing on the relationship between England and Scotland and the interaction between history and geography, Penny Fielding explores how Scottish literature in the Romantic period was shaped by the understanding of place and space. The book examines geography as a form of regional, national and global definition, addressing national surveys, local stories, place-names and travel writing, and argues that the case of Scotland complicates the identification of Romanticism with the local. Fielding considers Scotland as 'North Britain' in a period when the North of Europe was becoming a strong cultural and political identity, and explores ways in which Scotland was both formative and disruptive of British national consciousness.

Richard Frucht "Eastern Europe: An Introduction to the People, Lands, and Culture"
Published by ABC-CLIO | Publication date : December 2004 | ISBN : 1576078000 | PDF | 283, 452 & 423 pages | English | 8.8 + 12.2 + 12 MB

An antidote to the stereotype of Eastern Europe as a monolithic, backward, and totalitarian entity, this three-volume resource offers a look at the history and culture of each nation in the region. Coverage includes three groups of countries, each marked by geographical proximity and a general commonality in historical development.
The first volume covers the northern tier of states, including Poland, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia. The second examines lands that were once part of the Habsburg Empire and the third looks at the lands once dominated by the Ottoman Empire. Each chapter discusses a single country in terms of its geography, people, history, political development, economy and culture, as well as the challenges it now faces. Every chapter also contains short vignettes that exemplify the uniqueness of the country. Accessible to high-school level students and above, and general readers.
Strabo: Geography , Volume VIII, Book 17 and General Index

Strabo: Geography , Volume VIII, Book 17 and General Index
Publisher: Loeb Classical Library | ISBN: 0674992954 | edition 1932 | PDF | 528 pages | 22,5 mb

Strabo's historical work is lost, but his most important Geography in seventeen books has survived. After two introductory books, numbers 3 and 4 deal with Spain and Gaul, 5 and 6 with Italy and Sicily, 7 with north and east Europe, 8–10 with Greek lands, 11–14 with the main regions of Asia and with Asia Minor, 15 with India and Iran, 16 with Assyria, Babylonia, Syria, and Arabia, 17 with Egypt and Africa. In outline he follows the great mathematical geographer Eratosthenes, but adds general descriptions of separate countries including physical, political, and historical details. A sequel to his historical memoirs, Geography is planned apparently for public servants rather than students—hence the accounts of physical features and of natural products. On the mathematical side it is an invaluable source of information about Eratosthenes, Hipparchus, and Posidonius.

This book was conceived more than twenty years ago as a series of pictures of Europe at a sequence of periods in European history, each to be linked with the one which follows by an historical narrative. It grew in size until first, it had to be divided into two parts: classical-medieval, and then the linking narratives had to be omitted.
