By Debbie TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 31, 2010
"Adams' Chart of History" is a full-color timeline chart based on James Ussher's chronology. It's 28 inches tall and folds out nearly 23 feet. In the bound form, you can view the chart without unfolding it by turning the "pages" (the panels). The chart is printed on a heavy paper, so it holds up well to repeated use. You can also remove the chart from the binding or buy an unbound chart to put on a wall, like in a Sunday School room. The large panels are great for easy viewing on a wall, but they're a tad unwieldy when trying to view the chart when holding it. It helps to have a cleared table or bed to place it on.

The timeline shows world history from a Biblical perspective, starting with Adam and Eve. It shows the rulers and major events for all the major world civilizations up to 1878 AD. There are illustrations of the various events (like the Tower of Babel) and commentary in the free spaces. In the free space below the beginning of the timeline, there's a world map of the eastern hemisphere and information about Stone Age artifacts, eminent historians throughout history, the Rosetta stone, and similar topics.

There's a 64-page booklet packaged with the chart. It gave a key to the chart, though I'd already figured it out from a few minutes study of the chart. It also gave information about the author and summaries of the people and events on the timeline for each major world civilization.

There's a very similar timeline published by Barnes and Nobles in 1995 titled "The Wall Chart of World History" by Edward Hull (ISBN 0-88029-239-3). It's smaller in size (15 panels that are each 12 inches wide x 17 5/8 inches high), so the text is smaller but it's also easy to hold and carry around.

I purchased this as an addition for our homeschooling. It fit perfectly in the space I had measured. It's not just history on the wall. It's art!

This is an amazingly long timeline - both in content and in physical length. It was bigger than I had envisioned and takes up the full distance of a very long hallway along the back of the house. I absolutely love that. It couldn't fit in the designated "homeschool area" which means it became a part of the family space and a family curiosity almost immediately. I can't tell you how many times you catch people looking at it. The best part is, it is beautiful enough to be art. I don't mind at all having this on the wall on the way to the bedrooms. It has lovely illustrations, beautiful writing, a soft and warm color scheme. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

I've been a fan of world history timelines since I was a little kid and currently own just about every one that has ever been made. I must admit, this one has got to be one of the most beautiful, most detailed, and most ambitious (17 feet long!) that I have ever seen. However, please be aware that this chart was made in 1871 (!) and all the versions of it (even the ones that update it so that it goes up to the 21st century) are still 98% the same as the original 1871 version. Therefore you are getting a very Victorian/Eurocentric view of history. Historians have uncovered a wealth of information about the past since the 1800's and unfortunately, this is not conveyed on this chart.

So I do NOT recommend this for teaching history. But it's a great novelty piece.

This is a really good source if you want to put things into perspective in a time-line format. I'm a visual person, so I like to be able to "see" history in this format. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in Bible history.

This is a timeline from 1800s so "early history" is basically "biblical history." That's fine but if you're looking for Sumer or Babylon--you're going to be disappointed. More suitable for a classroom for a Religion course than a History course.

We own the wall panel version as well as the hardcover version. If your into learning about history AND the Bible this is an absolute NO BRAINER. One of a kind!

My children will be learning history from this thing for years. For accuracy, comprehensive breadth, and parallel perspective of regions this chart is priceless. Be sure to measure first, however. We ended up moving our homeschool history class to the basement, because it was the only place that we had a 25 foot wall to accommodate this behemoth.
