A time of transition. In Salem after 1825, the number of booksellers who were not printers increased, and publishing began to be a separate operation, though both printers and booksellers still published. Appended is a directory of the Salem book trade (pp.267-295) based partly on materials at the Essex Institute and including other book-related trades (binding, distribution, book agents, etc.) in Salem during the period.
