Rare, newly discovered material for teaching and research
This valuable supplement is comprised entirely of works that fall into the scope of Ralph R. Shaw and Richard H. Shoemaker’s “American Bibliography” (which formed the basis of Early American Imprints, Series II), but were either missed by Shaw and Shoemaker, or were listed by them but could not be found until now .The materials cover works of history, literature, religion, law, biography, cartography, geography, music, drama, poetry, personal accounts and confessions, as well as many scarce editions of works by women. No other collection offers scholars access to previously unknown publications from the pivotal Early Republic period.

Every item in Early American Imprints, Series II: Supplement 2 from the American Antiquarian Society, is expertly catalogued, and MARC records are available. Two earlier collections, Early American Imprints, Series II: Supplement from the American Antiquarian Society, and Early American Imprints, Series II: Supplement from the Library Company of Philadelphia, are also offered as invaluable complements to Early American Imprints: Shaw-Shoemaker. All supplements are fully integrated into America’s Historical Imprints for easy browsing and cross-searching with Early American Imprints, Series I, and many related collections.
