Winsor, Justin

Justin Winsor (1831-1897) was a distinguished American librarian and historian and a recognised authority on early American history. In volume one of his Narrative and Critical History of America (1889)(a) he began his dissertation with a chapter on the geographical knowledge of the ancients.
