A Checklist of American Imprints, 1826-30

A compilation of the national bibliography of the US for the years 1826-30, including books, pamphlets and "broadsides." ABSTRACT: A compilation of the national bibliography of the US for the years 1826-30, including books, pamphlets and "broadsides." Present list is very incomplete, inaccurate and gives no locations for its items. When completed, the project will provide a published list of books, etc. printed and published in the US for the indicated years, one volume per year. Will make available to scholars and researchers an accurate listing for the first time and will locate items that at present scholars cannot find. Vital scholarly tool in exploring and documenting the American past. Items may be found that will have significance for the growing number of courses being prepared and taught in black literature and black history, as forgotten or neglected black or black-rleated literature are discovered and indexed.
