Order Nr. 74416

Printed in an edition limited to 300 mimeographed copies. This list of 523 entries is limited to printed books and pamphlets, with the exception of a few handbills and broadsides, bearing the imprint of a Lexington printer, publisher, or bookseller, and to those bearing no imprint, that were probably issued by Lexington presses. Also included are books and pamphlets printed in Lexington but published for another locality. Lexington was chosen because it was the site of the first printing press in operation in the state, probably remaining the center of printing until it was surpassed by Louisville in the late 1820s. Wrappers wrinkled and slightly soiled.
