Gordon’s is the standard nineteenth-century gazetteer for New Jersey. Since the author’s stated objective was “to present to the public, a full and correct portraiture of the State in the year 1833,” it should come as little surprise that Gordon’s index of places in New Jersey is preceded by a detailed account of life in the Garden State at the time of the book’s publication. The gazetteer itself, which extends an additional 175 pages, covers every nook and cranny in the state, from small streams, hills, and hamlets to townships, cities, and entire counties. In fact, the alphabetical listing of places is interrupted periodically by statistical tables on New Jersey counties, showing the names of all townships, their length and breadth, area, and change in population from 1810 to 1830.
