Excerpt from History of the World From the Earliest Period to the Present Time, Vol. 4: Collected and Arranged From the Best Authorities

The extent of the American continent and the islands connected with it is as follows: North America, square miles; South America, Islands, Greenland, and the islands connected with it lying north of Hudson's Straits, may be esti mated at total, square miles. The American continent, therefore, with its dependent islands is fully four times as large as Europe, considerably larger than Africa, and about one fourth less than Asia, if we include with the latter Australasia and Polynesia. It constitutes about three-tenths of the dry land on the surface of the globe. A considerable portion is condemned to per petual sterility by the rigor of the climate. If we draw a line from the head of Cook's Inlet, in latitude on the west side, to the straits of Bellisle on the east, so as to pass through Fort Churchill, on Hudson's Bay, we shall cut off a space 'rather exceed ding one million and a half square miles, which may be considered as incapable of cultivation. At the south extremity of America, a small tract, extending 200 miles north of the straits of Magellan, though far within the limits of the temperate zone, is nearly in the same condition. These and the summits of the 'andes are the only parts of the American continent which are rendered incapable of cultivation by the severity of the climate.
