About this Item: American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Mass, 1947. Hardcover. Condition: Good condition. First edition. Volume 1 covers Alabama to New York and Vol. 2 covers North Carolina to West Virginia. With an introduction by the author. With five newspaper clippings from the mid-1940s laid in with review of book and article about the author and newspaper collections. The set, priced at $15 and written by the longtime director of the American Antiquarian Society, represents the author's life work and was hailed by reviewers, according to the Associated Press, "as one of the greatest one-man bibliographies ever compiled in the United States." Brigham said when he began the project in 1913, he expected it to take about five years. Instead, it took 34 and would not be completed until he was nearly 70 years old. He visited every place east of the Mississippi that had a newspaper prior to 1820, some 400 towns and cities, and documented 2,120 titles with their publication dates. He then added which issues were held at various libraries and archives. The oldest newspaper, Brigham discovered, was the New Hampshire Gazette in Portsmouth, founded in 1756, followed by Rhode Island's Newport Mercury, now the Newport News. The first newspaper published in America was Publick Occurrences, a single issue of which came out in Boston in 1690. 4to, 2 vols 1 - 1508 pp. Orig. blue & gilt cloth boards quite marked by insect damage and some staining to pages where newspaper clippings had been used as bookmarks and scattered pencil notations in margins, but otherwise good.

About this Item: American Antiquarian Society and The Corner Bookshop, Worcester, MA, 1947. First Edition. Quarto. In two volumes. 757pp. and [758]-1508pp. The author began his work in the early part of 1913. At the time, he believed though it was a monumental task and there was a need it should only take five years to finish. His plan was to write a brief historical account of the newspapers, with exact date to the year 1820. Each state is represented in alphabetical order. A study of the bibliography shows interesting statistical results. In the period from 1690 to 1820, there were 2120 different newspapers published. He shows that there were 194 newspapers, out of the total of 2120, not a single copy could be located, though they were known to exist. A very useful work for the collector or dealer of newspapers. A near fine set bound in dark blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, off setting to endpapers from dust jackets (not present), the slightest of bumping to corners. An exceptionally nice set.
