The Antiquities of Tennessee

Gates P. Thruston - 1890

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

We were especially pleased to find this rare original by Gates P. Thruston as it is referenced by quite a few of our other books. 

Colonel Bennett H. Young stated in his work The Prehistoric Men of Kentucky, "...General Gates P. Thruston, whose 'Antiquities of Tennessee' is certainly the most wonderful book from a local archeological standpoint that has been published in America. This work on the antiquities of Tennessee has been an inspiration and a help to all who deal with this delightful and interesting subject."

Please take a look below at a few of the many illustrations in this book.

Softbound, approximately 7" x 10",  Its 369 pages contain 10 chapters and is illustrated with 246 figures, drawings and photographs. $24.95
