“For anyone interested in Chicago’s early history, this book – the first to treat the history in an encyclopedic manner – is an essential reference.“
— Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley    

While the web site is constantly updated with the latest historical knowledge, the static book has its own unique advantages: Its generous format makes small but important detail or text on page-filling maps more easily recognizable than any web site can offer. And, anyway, is there someone who would not at times delight in the opportunity to sink into a comfortable chair with a good book in the lap?

A limited number of copies of the book on which this web site is based is still available. Copies can be ordered at bookstores for $59.95, or at a saving of 25% by ordering directly from the authors.

If interested in purchasing one or more copies, fill in your name and email address or telephone number below and click “submit.” We will then contact you. As a courtesy, an author will sign the copy at your request.
