American Gazetteer

Gazzettiere Americano, Mario Coltellini printer, Livorno“The American gazetteer” by Jedidiah Morse was first published in 1797, a few years after Joseph Scott's “Gazetteer of the United States” (1795).
In Livorno we had our first “Gazzettiere americano” in 1763, when Marco Coltellini printed a translation of “The American Gazetteer”, a British version published in London the year before.
