"In 1871, his Chronological Chart of Ancient, Modern and Biblical History was published by Strobridge & Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, the premier publisher of American commercial art. The technique of chromolithography offered the emerging middle class affordable color reproductions and, in this case, made lessons of history colorful and dramatic. Adams spent the next six years traveling, successfully selling the publication at a low cost. Modestly, Adams only claimed to have "synchronized" this historical chart. Now, over a hundred and thirty years later, it is a valuable addition to American museums and library collections as an early representative of commercial illustration." Virginai Green.
