Early American Imprints Collection, 1639-1819

The Periodicals Department of the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library is happy to announce the arrival of a new scanner that will make possible the printing of the Evans and Shaw-Shoemaker Early American Imprints.

Published by the American Antiquarian Society on opaque cards, this collection was an attempt to make materials which had been printed in this country from 1639 to 1844 available to scholars. The first item is a broadside from the Massachusetts Bay Colony, "The Oath of a Free-Man." Item 72 is John Eliot’s translation of the Old and New Testaments into the Massachusetts Indian language (Mamusse Wunneetupanatamwe up-Biblum God naneeswe Nukkone Testament kah wonk Wusku Testament).

In the past, there had been no method of printing from the opaque cards. Now old and new technologies have been combined to make printing possible, opening up the entire collection of these original sources in history, politics, law, the arts, literature, speeches and sermons, zoology and physiology. Even early college catalogs are included.

Access is through the volumes of American Bibliography and American Imprints at the Periodicals Reference Desk. A Catalogue of Early American Imprints 1640-1800 which can also be used to access this collection is now available on a CD-ROM. Ask for assistance in the Periodicals Department.

Gerritsen Women's History

English Women's Journal, (v.1-13, 1858-1864). For six years the English Women's Journal focused attention on the issues that were of immediate concern to women, including employment, education, suffrage, as well as larger questions of women's legal and social status.

Englishwoman's Review of Social and Industrial Questions (v.1-41, 1866-1910) participated in and recorded a great change in the range of possibilities open to women. The ideal of the magazine was the ideal of the emerging emancipated middle-class woman: economic independence from men, choice of occupation, participation in the male enterprises of commerce and government, access to higher education, admittance to the male professions, particularly medicine, and, of course, the power of suffrage equal to that of men.
