American Pamphlets Series I 1820-1922: From the New York Historical Society

This Readex collection includes over 25,000 pamphlets covering 100 years of American life, from the Jacksonian Era up to the beginning of the Jazz Age. The publication of pamphlets exploded in the 19th century, creating a forum to express views and perspectives not seen in other print genres. The pamphlets in this digitized collection address a wide range of topics including slavery, suffrage, religious movements, the Civil War, and dozens of other divisive issues. These pamphlets contain speeches, orations, debates, sermons, treatises, tracts, narratives, poems, songs, memoirs, announcements, and legal notices.
