Old County Map Title Pages

Auglaize County, Ohio

In the 19th century, printers were proud of their craft and made everyday jobs into works of art. Consider county records, such as maps and deeds and such. They were bound into volumes of boring but useful historical data, and the typography printed on the cover was magnificent ...at least compared to the computer-generated cover pages and labels used today.
