If you would like to read books from the same time period as the 1895 atlas, I and a few friends have added dozens of books that were originally printed between about 1850 to the early 20th century, and in most cases have added all name indexes.

  Could You Pass the 8th Grade Exam of 1895? - by MWHodges
This is the eighth-grade final exam* from 1895 from Salina, Kansas.
This author is convinced that those U.S. 8th graders in 1895 had no trouble matching or exceeding foreign students of their day.
If showing this 1895 exam causes others to think such as to cause demand for much improved standards, better testing and grading/promotion/graduation requirements, all aimed at improving our quality to assist our young and their nation toward a better future, then, in my view, it will have served a useful purpose.

  USA-Presidents.Info - Grover Cleveland Seventh State of the Union Address
The performance of this contract not only restored the reserve, but checked for a time the withdrawals of gold and brought on a period of restored confidence and such peace and quiet in business circles as were of the greatest possible value to every interest that affects our people.
Though the amount of gold drawn from the Treasury appears to be very large as gathered from the facts and figures herein presented, it actually was much larger, considerable sums having been acquired by the Treasury within the several periods stated without the issue of bonds.
On the 28th of January, 1895, it was reported by the Secretary of the Treasury that more than $172,000,000 of gold had been withdrawn for hoarding or shipment during the year preceding.

 The Albumen & Salted Paper Book
These first 50 years of photography established a tradition of individual experimentation and craftsmanship in which each photographer (of necessity) participated in the manufacture of the printing materials he or she used.
The albumen print and the salted paper print were not exotic or eccentric processes in their own time, but were the ordinary, all-purpose materials of photographic printing.
The albumen print is the second most common type of photograph ever made (though perhaps it has already lost this distinction to the chromogenic color print); it accounts for approximately 85% of the total number of surviving 19th-century photographic prints.
