Does the library have any books about the years 1492-1815?
We do not have books that are about global history during that specific period of time, but we do have many books about specific historical events that took place within that period. The best way to approach this topic is to select an individual event that happened from between 1492 and 1815 (ex. colonization of the Americas by Europeans, the Revolutionary War, Louisiana Purchase) and search for books on it.
