American Antiquarian Society (AAS) Historical Periodicals Collection: Series 3
Digitized collection of more than 500 American journals and magazines documenting the life of America's people, with coverage from 1838 to 1852.
Subject coverage includes agriculture, children's literature, education, family life, law, leisure and hobbies, medicine, religion, science and technology, slavery, the trades, women's fashion, and women's literature. The holdings in this collection are expansive and many titles, both prominent and small, can be found. The broad range of geography as well as a diversity of languages (French, German, and Welsh) in the collection reflect the rapid westward expansion that characterizes this time period.
