Early American Newspapers Significantly Expanded with Series 12, 1821-1900

David Loiterstein Discussion

In January 2016 Readex will release Early American Newspapers, Series 12, featuring more than 1,200 19th-century titles collected by the American Antiquarian Society. Bringing online for the first time hundreds of rare short-lived U.S. papers, Series 12 will also offer an especially large number of titles in specific disciplines. For the study of economic and industrial history, agricultural and mercantile titles are included. Campaign newspapers are represented by titles covering all presidential and many important regional campaigns from the Early National Era to Reconstruction. Denominational newspapers provide new insight into religion and offer commentary on such issues as slavery, women’s suffrage and prohibition. In addition, gazettes—known as newspapers of record—are replete with statistical data.
