Series V: Published Materials

Scope and Content Note

Series V consists of engineering reports, journals, one bible, maps, and the program of the opening ceremonies of the Brooklyn Bridge. The three engineering reports consist of one report on the Niagra Railway Suspension Bridge and two on the East River (Brooklyn) Bridge. Journals consist of one issue of a circa 1869 weekly periodical, "The Volunteer". The maps in this series consist of five maps; three military maps of Virginia published by the War Deparment, one map of Philadelphia and Camden and one map of gold regions in California. Paricularly of interest is the 1852 "Gold Regions in California" map. The map is in full color and includes technical annotations by Paine.
