This illustrated series on American History is a striking exception to the usual age group concept in publishing. Instead of bearing an "adult" or "juvenile" label, Adventures in History volumes are designed for any alert reader who wishes a clear and accurate introduction to the subject. Many are written by solid authors from the 1960s.
The approximately 150 page books contain a gallery of from-the-period pictures on the subject as good or better than most museum collections, and every volume is indexed and provides a list of suggested further reading. Most of them can be read online for free!
