Readex Adding to Digitized Early American Newspapers

Readex (, a division of NewsBank, Inc. and a publisher of online historical collections, announced that it will begin publishing Early American Newspapers, Series II, 1758-1900 and Series III, 1829-1922 in March 2006. Complementing Early American Newspapers, Series I, 1690-1876, these new series offer fully searchable digital facsimiles of more than 350 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century newspapers, totaling nearly 3 million pages. These and all Archive of Americana collections are published in cooperation with the American Antiquarian Society (AAS).

While many of the 650-plus titles in Early American Newspapers, Series I were printed in the 18th century, the historical newspapers in Series II and Series III are diverse chronologically and geographically. The titles in Series II focus on the period between 1820 and 1860, when the number of American newspapers rose dramatically, transformed by an increasing emphasis on local society, industry, scientific and technological advances, crime, investigative journalism, and stories of human interest. The titles in Series III focus on the period between 1861 and 1900, reflecting the further growth of newspapers in number and in size following the formation of the Associated Press, during and after the Civil War, and throughout the period of westward expansion. Both new series offer newspapers from all 50 states.
