If you plan to travel extensively in the United States (or wish you could), this beautifully-illustrated set of books points you to multiple historic treasures of each region—some famous, many less so—that might not make it into your hotel lobby's guidebook pamphlets. Though they have dated information about hours, fees, and contact information, these are still remarkable books, expertly researched and full of detail and depth.

This volume covers Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, and features:

  • 175 color photographs
  • 25 historical paintings, engravings, and photographs
  • 13 specially-commissioned color maps
  • An illustrated architectural guide
  • Addresses and telephone numbers for every site; hours and fee information for all major sites
