The topic of this new book from the American Antiquarian Society is printing in New England in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. More specifically, the author focuses on three printers who were active during that period: Nathaniel Coverly, Sr.; Nathaniel Coverly, Jr.; and Joseph White. Through a close examination of the bibliographical evidence, she demonstrates the extent of the production by the two Coverlys and White to the reading material available to adults and children in New England over more than fifty years.
The introduction provides a brief historical summary and an outline of the text that follows. Biographical descriptions of the Coverlys and Joseph White, as well as checklists of their works are included. There are approximately twenty grayscale images throughout the text. An index makes quick referencing possible. Distributed for the American Antiquarian Society.
