AMERICAN PERIODICALS, 18TH CENTURY.

Ann Arbor, Mich.: University Microfilms International, 1946
American periodical series I
33 reel(s)

The eighty-eight titles in this collection trace the early evolution of the American periodical. It begins with two short-lived periodicals published in 1741 by Andrew Bradford and Benjamin Franklin, and extends through the increasing magazine activity after the Revolution. Four of the era's most important and longest-lived periodicals are included: the Columbian Magazine and the American Museum, both of Philadelphia, the Massachusetts Magazine of Boston, and the New-York Magazine. Subjects covered include politics and government, slavery, religion, books, and European news. Sentimental fiction, much of which was serialized, and Revolutionary pamphlets are also included. Titles are arranged alphabetically on the film.

AMERICAN PERIODICALS, 1800-1850.

Ann Arbor, Mich.: University Microfilms International, 1966
American periodical series II

The spirit of nationalism and of westward expansion runs throughout the periodical publications of this prolific period, which marked the beginning of a distinctly American literature. Religious periodicals and magazines for women and children were numerous during this period. Godey's Lady's Book, the Juvenile Port-Folio, the Saturday Evening Post, and the New-York Mirror are representative of the most significant periodicals of the time. Because the arrangement is not alphabetical, the title index in the guide must be used to locate specific periodicals. Periodicals are one of the main sources that reflect American public opinion of the period.

844 fiche

From Webster's Spellers and McGuffey Readers to Dick and Jane, this collection consists of primers, readers, spelling books, alphabet books, teaching manuals, and non-instructional juvenile literature published primarily in America from 1711 to 1943.

The collection includes some British imprints that were heavily imported to the colonies in the eighteenth century as well as non-English readers, especially German textbooks from Pennsylvania; readers and spellers in Native American languages; Confederate textbooks; and textbooks of simplified orthography, including Edwin Leigh's pronouncing orthographies published circa 1870. Material in the collection documents reading instruction in the U.S., illustrating pedagogical methods and tools. The collection highlights as well issues in the history of book design and illustration, publishing, and book selling in America.

This collection is a reproduction of the complete texts of approximately 42,000 books, pamphlets, and broadsides listed in Charles Evans' American Bibliography. Evans attempted to locate and describe everything printed in America up to 1800. Readex researchers added 12,000 works overlooked by Evans, as well as correcting his faulty entries. This series reflects, through the printed page, events through the American Revolutionary period. Titles are arranged chronologically in the order of entry in Evans' bibliography. They use the numbers assigned to each item by Evans. Although Evans listed magazines and newspapers, these are not included in the microprint edition but are filmed separately and described in this guide under American Periodicals and under Early American Newspapers.

Many British and European authors whose works were published in America are also represented.

Beginning with the first book published in English, Caxton's translation of Recuyell of the History of Troye, and continuing through the age of Spenser and Shakespeare, this collection contains nearly all of the 26,500 titles listed in Pollard and Redgrave`s Short-Title Catalogue and its revised edition. Pollard and Redgrave attempted to list every title published in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland and all works in the English language published elsewhere during this period. The collection also includes additional titles of the period not included in the above work. The series fully documents the magnificent English Renaissance, which witnessed the rebirth of classical humanism, the broadening of the known world, and the spread of printing and education. Included are the earliest editions of such classics as Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, original versions of royal statutes and proclamations, military, religious, legal, parliamentary, and other public documents, numerous early English ballads and carols, and sermons, homilies, saints' lives, liturgies, and the Book of Common Prayer (1549). This collection will fulfill the most exhaustive research requirements of scholars in the areas of English literature, history, philosophy, linguistics, and the fine arts.

Many filmed titles have records in Ellis Library's main card catalog and in Special Collection's card catalog. Units 49-58 (reels 1699-1907) are individually cataloged in MERLIN. An online tutorial is available at http://mulibraries.missouri.edu/barkera/earlymfilm.mht.

In November of 1847, the American writer and Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson began a lecture tour of Britain. One of the key coordinators of the visit was Alexander Ireland, a resident of Manchester and a great admirer of Emerson. Throughout his career, Ireland assembled an impressive collection of Emerson's work as well as the publications of Emerson's intellectual peers and contemporaries like Thomas Carlyle, Leigh Hunt, Charles Lamb, and William Hazlitt. He also kept clippings from newspaper and magazine articles on Emerson and records related to the 1847-48 lecture tour. Upon his death the collection was presented to the Manchester Free Reference Library as the Ralph Waldo Emerson Collection.

Stevens, Wallace. WALLACE STEVENS-CUMMINGTON PRESS CORRESPONDENCE, 1941-1951.

Wakefield: Microform Academic Publishers, 1992
British records relating to America in microfilm
1 reel(s)

Reproduced in this collection is the correspondence between American poet Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) and Katharine Frazier and Harry Duncan of the Cummington Press. This correspondence documents Stevens's compositional methods and the reception of his poems as well as provides a picture of business relations during that time period. Also included in the collection is the original typescript of the first edition of Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction with emendations by Stevens. Stevens, considered one of the major modern American poets, was also a vice-president of the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Corporation of Hartford, CT, two lives that he consciously kept separate. His first book of poems, Harmonium, was published in 1923, but he was not widely recognized until his Collected Poems was published in 1954. Much of his poetry, including his long poem "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction," involves his working out the interrelatedness of reality and the imagination and the role of poetry. Located in Cummington, Massachusetts, the Cummington Press was founded in 1939 by Harry Duncan as part of the Cummington School of the Arts. Using a hand printing press, the press became known as one of the finest small presses in the country. Stevens's Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction was published in 1942 and Esthetique du Mal in 1945.

Walt Whitman Collection.

WALT WHITMAN COLLECTION.

East Ardsley, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England: Microform Academic Publishers, 2001
British records relating to America in microform
12 reel(s)

The Walt Whitman Collection (1880-1948) consists primarily of correspondence between members of the Bolton Whitman Fellowship and with other English and North American Whitmanites, correspondence with Whitman himself, addresses and lectures composed by various members of the group, journal and newspapers articles, and photographs. Whitman (1819-1892), noted American journalist, essayist, and poet, garnered a loyal following in Britain, especially in Bolton, Lancashire where James William Wallace (1853-1926) and a group of educated working class and lower middle class admirers met as the "Eagle Street College" (later known as Bolton Whitman Fellowship) to discuss literary works, especially Whitman's poetry, and social and political issues. The group was drawn to Whitman by the revolutionary, democratic ideas in his essays and poetry. Other figures prominent in the collection include John Johnston, Charles Frederick Sixsmith, and Edward Carpenter. This collection will be of interest to scholars studying Whitman, the reception of Whitman's poetry, early British socialism, and utopian visionaries in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The original material is held at the John Rylands University Library Manchester, England.
