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.
