Announcing American Pamphlets, Series 1, 1820-1922: From the New-York Historical Society

Posted on 03/04/2013

A partnership between Readex and the New-York Historical Society, one of America's pre-eminent cultural institutions, has led to this announcement about the creation of a new online resource: American Pamphlets, Series 1, 1820-1922. Created from New York Historical’s vast holdings—an accumulation that began nearly two centuries ago—this unique new resource will provide students and scholars with more than 25,000 short works printed in 49 states between the Jacksonian Era and the dawn of the Jazz Age. 

Louise Mirrer, President and Chief Executive Officer of the New-York Historical Society, writes “The rich scope of the collection illuminates the life and history of the United States in a unique way, and offers outstanding new opportunities for scholarship. The partnership with Readex will make this rich resource more widely available to the public.”

American Pamphlets, Series 1, 1820-1922: From the New-York Historical Society will open up new research opportunities in history, communications, political science, literature, sociology, gender and ethnic studies. Academic librarians and scholars around the world have praised advance word of this large collection, which will be fully integrated into America’s Historical Imprints for seamless searching.
