Readex Announces Digital Edition of American Broadsides and Ephemera

Readex (, a division of NewsBank, Inc. and provider of digital access to American historical documents, announced that the digital edition of American Broadsides and Ephemera will be available in fall 2005. Based on the American Antiquarian Society's collections, this digital edition will offer fully searchable facsimile images of approximately 15,000 broadsides printed between 1820 and 1876 and 15,000 pieces of ephemera printed between 1760 and 1876. The launch of this digital edition will mark 50 years of collaboration between Readex and the American Antiquarian Society.

"This fully catalogued collection brilliantly reveals the social, cultural, and daily life of late 18th-century and 19th-century America," says Georgia B. Barnhill, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Graphic Arts at the American Antiquarian Society. "Subjects range from contemporary accounts of the Civil War, unusual occurrences and natural disasters to official government proclamations, tax bills, and town meeting reports. Broadsides and ephemera serve to illuminate the American past in profound and unique ways."

Readex's digital edition of American Broadsides and Ephemera enables the 30,000 items to be cross-searched with Readex's Web-based Archive of Americana, a family of comprehensive, authoritative collections of American historical documents. The Archive of Americana offers researchers millions of pages of books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, and government publications printed between 1639 and the late 20th century.
