PREFACE. 



The new system, introduced in this issue of the American Newspaper Direc- 
tory, for rating newspapers as to their circulation hy a graduated scale indicated 
by letters is sufficiently explained in the " key," and will, it is hoped, work more 
entirely to the satisfaction of all persons interested, than that formerly adopted. 
In 1870, when it was first decided to give information on this subject, the editor 
applied to proprietors of newspapers for statements, and inserted before the 
figures so obtained the word "claims." After a time objections were urged 
against this word, and to avoid its use, publishers oflTered to prove reports, by 
affidavits and otherwise. Many, however, were satisfied with the word as used, 
and arguing that one claira was as good as another, set up pretentions which could 
not be substantiated. It became evident that if the book was to become an 
authority the " claimed " circulations would have to be excluded. Thenceforth, 
those newspapers whose proprietors offered proof had their circulation figures 
given positively, without any preliminary word ; in all other cases the figures 
were followed by the word " estimated." 

In the course of a year or two the word " estimated " became as objectiona- 
ble as the other, and newspaper publishers frequently asked that it be omitted. 
To this request, the response was uniformly made that the word could only be 
omitted in those cases where an offer to prove correctness accompanied the cir- 
cvilation statement when given. 

This position gave offence to many. It was a system introduced for the pro- 
tection of honest publishers against their more unscrupulous neighbors. It 
seemed a good one when it was adopted. It doubtless answered an excellent 
purpose in its time, but it finally gave rise to so much dissatisfaction that it was 
abandoned. , 

A statement, in detail, of the number issued is now all that is required, and 
this may be made in any form which suits the convenience of the publisher fur- 
nishing it. If notoriously false, it is likely to be disregarded, and, in any event, 
is liable to receive the critical scrutiny of rivals capable of bringing to bear 
much positive knowledge on the subject. 

The publishers of the Directory take this occasion to express thanks for the 
assistance rendered in hundreds of communications from newspaper publishers 
of the United States and Canada, who have taken pains to revise advance sheets, 
report suspensions, new establishments, and to correct reports which did 
injustice to neighbors— often rivals. 

Since January, 1878, the work has been subject to a Daily Revision, and cor- 
rected editions have appeared, and will continue to appear, four times a year. 
Every publisher is specially requested to send in a statement by which the cir- 
culation ratings may be revised whenever the existing quotation is found to be 
unjust. Such statements always have the attention which their truthful import 
warrants. 

The price of the book will hereafter be the same as in the years previous to 
1878— Five Dollars.

one or two lines is as readily received as one for fifty or one 
hundred. When not otherwise specified upon the order all

ADDRESS COMMUNICATIONS TO 

EDITOR OF AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY, 

No. 10 SPRUCE ST. (PRINTING HOUSE SQUARE), NEW YORK. 



COMMENDATIONS. 



The object of the American Newspaper Directory is not very dif- 
ferent from that of the well-known meicantile agencies which exist in all 
our leading- cities. The latter keep their subscribers informed of the char- 
acter, habits, 7"eputation, business ability, and financial strength of the per- 
sons with whom they are likely to have business transactions, enabling them 
thereby to regulate those transactions as to secure probably profitable deal- 
ings, or td) avoid such as will be likely to result in ultimate annoyance or 
logs. 

The Directory conveys the best obtainable information concerning the 
character aud value of newspapers. Its patrons are men who expend money 
in advertising (a large and important class), and it is from them that the 
publishers of the Directory, in their capacity of Advertising Agents, 
derive their profit and support. 

As the most important portion of the information supplied by a mercan- 
tile agency consists of a report of the financial strength of the person about 
whom information is asked, so is the circidation of a newspaper generally 
considered the point upon which information will be of most value to the 
advertiser. 

The greatest possible care is taken to make the Directory reports cor- 
rect. Every publisher is applied to systematically. All information is 
taken in a form which excludes any but definite statements ; while every 
effort is made to protect honest publi^-hers against such as would resort to 
lying or perjured reports to gain an unfair advantage. 



COMMENDATIONS. 



From Weelcs & Potter, Wholesale Druggists, 360 Washington Street. 

Boston, May 7, 1S77. 

It is to the judicious advertiser what the dispensary is to the careful druggist— an 
authority, without which it would be impossible to avoid serious mistakes. I anticipate 
the day when every newspaper worthy of advertising patronage will truthfviUy state its 
circulation, either in the Directory or at the head of its columns ; but wherever stated, it 
w^ill be due, in nearly every case, to the original and persistent efforts of Messrs. Geo. P. 
Rowell & Co. ; and as character and circulation determine the value of a medium, adver- 
tisers should not forget this important service you have rendered them. 

Respectfully, Geo. R. White. 



University of Virginia, May 5, 18T7. 

Gentlemen :— The annual production of such a Directory bespeaks an enterprise and a 
vigor of administration peculiarly your own. One knows not whether more to admire at 
the intelligent perception which realizes the utility to yourselves of such a publication, or 
the vast business which makes it possible. The editor, the printer, and the binder, have 
combined in performing each his part with singular zeal and success, showing that if j'ou 
choose to be a publisher you might be as peerless as in the vocation you have adopted, and 
indeed, may be fairly said to have invented. Your friend and servant, John B. Minor. 



RONDOUT, N. Y., May 8, 1877. 

I have carefully examined its contents, and I would say, not to flatter, but simply as a 
matter of fact, that you have made valuable improvement in the way of giving informa- 
tion, especially in regard to location and population of the leading towns and cities ; wliile 
the type, paper, and binding, in short, everything pertaining to the book, rings of good, 
honest material, reflecting that tone and character upon its authors, which their established 
and well-earned reputation would lead one to expect of them. Dr. D. Kennedy. 



From S. S. Scranton <& Co., Book Publishers, No. 281 Asylum Street. 

Hartford, Conn., May 8, 1877. 

In the quality of the materials, its beautiful typography, and the entire make-up and 
arrangement of the work, we regard it as a model worthy of imitation and typical of the 
enterprise which characterizes your house. We have made frequent and valuable use of 
former editions of your Directory, and find the present one full or information of practical 
benefit to us in our business. 



COMMENDATIONS. 



Office of I. S. Johnson <& Co., Proprietors of Johnson's Anodyne Liniment. 

Bangor, Maine, May 7, 1877. 

We bear witness to the great value and importance of the work to all people who have 
business with or want to know anything about newspapers. We notice many important 
impi-ovements in this book over those previously issued by you, and believe that it is about 
as near perfect as such a work can be made. Your friends, I. S. Johnson & Co. 



Pittsburgh, May 8, 1877. 
Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co., New York : 

Gentlemen— We are in receipt of your valuable Newspaper Directory for 1877, and must 
say in the manner of compiling we look upon this edition the best you have issued, and an 
indispensable work for all but local advertisers. Most truly yours, Hostetter & Smith. 



From Seth W. Fowle <& Sons, Proprietors of Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, Peruvian 

Syrup, &c. 

We have subscribed for the work from its first issue, and we cannot get along without 
it. We consider it the most complete work of the kind published, and the descriptions of 
cities and towns in the present volume add much to its value. 



From, the Mercantile Agency, Dun, Barlow <& Co., 335 Broadway. 

New York. May 3, 1877. 
Messrs Geo. P. Rowell & Co., New York City : 

Dear Sirs,— It is a most ci-editable book, and one which we prize highly. You are certain 
of any business we have. 

Jersey City, N. J., May 4, 1877. 
Although we do our advei-tising through you, there is scarcely a day that we do not 
want to refer to it in a business transaction. O. P. Brown. 



Philadelphia, May 5, 1877. 
A A'ery complete and valuable work for advertisers. 

National Publishing Company, No. 19 North Seventh Street. 



New York, May 4, 1877. 
We find the book invaluable. Yours respectfully, Dundas Dick. 



Buffalo, N. Y., May 7, 1877. 
Invaluable. R. v. Pierce. 



Claverack College and Hudson River Institute, Claverack, N. Y., May 10, 1877. 

We value it very highly. We have looked about a good deal among advertising agencies, 
and feel satisfied that we are best served by your firm. It is about 15 years, we think, since 
we made our first order (you know), and it is our judgment that we have ordered every 
year during that period. We have learned to like you especially for your advice to adver- 
tise judiciously. Yours truly, Alonzo Flack. 



From Wells <& Richardson, Wholesale Druggists. 

Burlington, Vt., May 9, 1877. 
You have surpassed all your previous efforts. 



Office of the Water Proof Building Felt, Camden, N. J., May 9, 1877. 
I also wish to add my many thanks for the prompt, faithful, and satisfactory manner in 
which you have conducted my advertising business, as my books show you to have done in 
every month during the past seven years. Truly yours, C. J. Fay. 



From P. Lorillard <& Co., Established 1760. 

New York, May 19th, 1877. 
It is so complete and full in every important particular as to make it a desirable book of 
reference for the entire business community. 



From " Domestic " Sewing Machine Co., Manufacturers of " Domestic " and " GhrOver & Baker 
Sewing Machines, and " Domestic " Paper Fashions. 

New York, May 19th, 1877. 
The volume is invaluable for reference to all advertisers. The Gazetteer feature in the 
present issue is a very great improvement. 



From the Mason & Hamlin Organ Co. 

Boston, May 23, 1877. 
It will be of much benefit to us, being complete in all its details. 



From Joseph Burnett <& Co., 27 Central Street. 

Boston, May 2:? 1877. 
It is a valuable book.

From D. M. Perry <& Co., Seed Merchants.

From W. C. Davis & Co., Stoves and Holldw Ware. 

Cincinnati, April 17, 1878. 
We use your book entirely in making up lists, and consider it the only thing of the kind 
extant having a)iy value. 

From L. Jones & Co., Card Printers. 

Nassau, N. Y., August 14, 1878. 
Your Newspaper Directory has been a great help to us. 

NEWSPAPER OPINIONS, 1876. 

The Rowell Directory is full of interesting facts down to minor details regarding the peri- 
odicals of the country.— Hartford (Conn.) Courant, May 13, 1876. The publishers in 

affording the public such a complete work are certainly deserving of commendation.— 

Albany (N. Y.) Argus, May 9, 1876. The advertising world is well acquainted with the 

usefulness of this manual ; and it maintains its reputation for accuracy.— JV. Y. Scientific 

American, June 6, 1876. While in some cases the figures may be too low and in others 

too high, it is generally conceded that they are in the main correct.— TFas/iingitow (D. C.) 

Evening Star, May 13, 1876. The immense amount of labor necessary to the production 

of this guide-book and encyclopedia of newspaperdom, and the great care visible in its 
manipulations, cannot be too highly compensated or commended. — Golden Mean, Canfield, 

Ohio, June 1, 1876. The necessity for a guide-book like Geo. P. Rowell & Go's American 

Newspaper Directory has become more evident, until it is now regarded as well nigh indis- 
pensable. — Utica Herald, May 12, 1876. It is a great monument of a great business, but 

it is much more, as it is an aid to the business of the country, afforded by no other medium 
of information with which we are acquainted. It enables business men to put themselves 
in communication with the channels of publicity in all iiarts of the country. It enables the 
student of politics to arrive at the answers to many enquiries entering remote sections. It 
enables the student of any class to obtain at once the names and comparative influence of 
the current organs of popular opinion. It is, therefore, not alone in the libraries of writers 
and newspaper men that it ought to be found, though it is so useful to us that it seems to 

have been compiled for us alone.— Ca^/ioMc Bevieiv, New York City, Dec. 23, 1876. The 

task of G. P. Rowell & Co., is by no means one to be lightly undertaken. We are satisfied, 
however, that it has been performed with a conscientious thoroughness, ability and success 
that deserve high praise, and ensure the success of the " Directory "—for it has no competi- 
tor, and it is an indispensable source of information for all who seek to know the value of 
advertising in pai'ticular journals. Year by year the " Directory " becomes more and more 
trustworthy, as added experience enables Rowell & Co., to perfect the details of their work. 
New York Evening Mail, December 19, 1876. 

NEWSPAPER OPINIONS, 1877. 

This book is invaluable to business men who do extensive advertising. Some of our 
largest advertising concerns in Boston say they could not get along without this Directory j 
it gives them immense assistance. The enterprise of Rowell & Co., is commendable, and 
shows to what a wonderful extent the advertising business has developed in the United 
States.— £os^on Pilot, May 12, 1877. 

The value of a publication of this nature consists in accuracy and close attention to all 
the necessary details. The volume before us fulfills all the requisite conditions, and no 
desirable particulars appear to have been omitted. — New York Daily Bulletin, May 8, 1877. 

The book gives in a well arranged and methodical form about all the information 
regarding newspapers that anybody would desire to know. The information, so desirable 
to advertisers respecting the circulation of different papers, is moi-e accurate than can 
usually be obtained. — Rochester (N. Y.) Daily Union atid Advertiser, May 22, 1877. 

It is the best that has ever been published,— IndciJendence (Kansas) Daily Courier, May 18. 

The Directory is evidently the result of a vast amount of worls..—Sprtngvale (Me.) Re- 
porter, May 19, 1877. 

The present issue is an improvement upon its predecessors, and will prove a valuab ^ 
book of reference to a large circle of business men.— -Boston Transcript, May 8, 1877. 

This work has evidently been prepared with great care.— i?osto«. Journal, May 5, 1877. 

The publishers of this book have spared neither pains or expense in their endeavors to 
procure information in regard to the newspapers of the country, and they have succeeded 
in making the book one that, as a reference to publications, is unsurpassed, either to adver- 
tisers or others desiring information in regard to newspapers.— TFbod/iuZZ (IlHtwis) Enter- 
prise, May 25, 1877. 

A new feature of this work, and one that will prove to be of great value, is a description 
of each town and city in Avhich these papers are published. This will give advertisers a 
chance to determine what localities are most advantageous for them to reach. For Instance, 
parties wishing to advertise machinery, are enabled to see from this work where such 
machinery is most extensively used, and the same is true of all other classes of advertise- 
ments.— Tonat^anda (N. Y.) Index, May 24, 1877. 

Of course the volume is invaluable to advei-tisei-s. — Scientific American, N. Y., May2&, 1877, 

The largest and most complete work of the kind yet published, and gives in a well ar- 
ranged and methodical form all the information regarding newspapers that anybody would 
desire to know.— Canastota (N. Y.) Herald, May 18, 1877. 



COMMENDATIONS . 



A new feature of much Interest appears In this volume, a concise description of the town 
in which each paper is published. This idea of the geographical position of a town or city 
and the general occupations of its people is really of moment in advei'tising. Geo. P. Rowell 
& Co. are universally Icnown and honored as an advertising house of long experience, up- 
rightness, and extended and finely systematized facilities.— £rocfcfon {3Iass.) Weekly Advance, 
May 19, 1S77. 

The best practical review and illustration of the journalism of the country issued.— 
Springfield (Mass.) Daily Republican, May 18, 1877. 

The book is a credit to the publishers.— Jforwinflr Express, Albany, N. Y., May 17, 1877. 

By the aid of one of tjiese Directories an advertiser may send advertisements to the 
press of any section of the country, or if the business he desires to advertise be a special 
one, such as to interest solely persons engaged in one branch of business, by referring to the 
description of towns, etc., he will be able to ascertain what communities are constituted of 
the class of persons he desires to reach. — Richmond Co. Sentinel, New Brighton, N. Y., May 
16, 1877. 

To all who would study the periodical press, and especially all who propose to advertise 
to any considerable extent, such a Directory is invaluable, and we know of nothing else in 
the same line that can compare with it in completeness. — Congregationalist, Boston, Mass., 

May 9, 1877. 

It is a magnificent work and reflects credit on the publishers and on the newspaper fra- 
ternity of the United StSites.— Anti-Monopolist, Saint Paul, Minnesota, May 24, 1877. 

Geo. P. Rowell & Co. deserve the best thanks of the advertising community for their 
efforts to prevent advertisers from being imposed on by unscrupulous publishers. Every 
honest publisher will also thank them for the aid they have afforded them in maintaining 
their competition for business by fair means, against the fraudulent practices of dishonest 
rivals. Messrs. Rowell & Co., alone of Newspaper Directory publishers, have had the cour- 
age to undertake the task or discrimnating among the statements of newspapers, and to 
face the hostility which such a course was sure to excite among those who profited by mis- 
representation. Notwithstanding the "crushing " articles that from time to time have been 
hurled at them, sometimes by parties who ought to have known better, they have persevered 
in their course, and they have nad their reward. Their jpublication has taken the first place 
as the standard authority among American Newspaper Directories, and a reference book for 
ever:^ large advertiser and advertising agency in this country.-^Jersej/ City Journal, May 
22, 1877. 

It is a valuable work of reference and should be in the hands of every business man. It 
is a descriptive geography of every tOAvn in the Union where a newspaper is published, and 
in the East, especially among extensive advertisers, it is considered invaluable. In this con - 
nection we deem it but just to add that we have had business dealings with the publishers, 
Geo. P. Rowell & Co., running through eleven years, and have always found them honest 
and straightforward, and during that time there has not been a dispute or difference be- 
tween us. — Springfield {Mo.) Leader, May 24, 1877. 

There is one new feature In this work which calls for special attention— the description 
of towns in which the newspapers are published. This will enable advertisers not only to 
form an opinion of the papers, Imt will also give them an idea of the city and surrounding 
country— all of which are very important facts to the shrewd advertiser. Rowell & Co. have 
a national reputation— they are not only well known to the newspapers of the country, but 
are regarded as representative advertising agents by the people everywhere. Their busi- 
ness is immense, and how they can possibly transact it all in a manner that gives satisfac- 
tion to the advertiser, to the publisher, and to themselves is a va.ax\e\.— Daily Times, Leaven- 
worth, Kan., May 22, 1877. 

This Directory Is very complete ; we find it fair and accurate ; and it well mirrors one of 
the great elements of modern civilization. The volume has value for reference, and for 
large advertisers is indispensable.— Jifoming Herald, Utica, N. Y., June 1, 1877. 

Messrs. Rowell & Co., have long stood at the head of the advertising agency business, and 
although their Directories in the past have been very full and complete, we regard the issue 
for 1877 superior to any ever sent out by them, or anyone else, in several particulars.— Sera/d, 
Elizabeth, Pa., June 1, 1877. 

NEWSPAPER OPINIONS, 1878. 

We judge that this book is as near accurate in its statements of papers, their circula- 
tion, etc., as it is possible to get. We have done business with Rowell & Co. a good many 
years, and we believe that they mean to do justice by their customers and publishers.- Tb- 
peka Commonwealth, Jan. 30, 1878. 

This edition is the best and most complete work of its specialty the world has ever seen. 
—West Meriden Recorder, Jan. 30, 1878. 

Those who contemplate advertising to any extent, however small, cannot afford to be 
without this book. Messrs. Rowell & Co's facilities are unequalled by amy.— Rock Island 
ni.) Argus, Jan. 20, 1878. . 

Is cordially endorsed by the leading advertisers, not only of the United States, but of the 
vforlA.-Leavenworth (Kan.) Times, Jan. 30, 1878. 

It is a work that will be found most convenient by publishers, and Its value to gfeneral 
advertisers can hardly be overestimated.— iio«i€ (N. Y.) Sentinel, Jan. 29, 1878. 

Is Invaluable to all having to do with newspaper work.— Boston Traveler, Jan. 30, 1878. 

It is characterized by the typographical neatness and accuracy, and evidence of consci- 
entious labor, which distinguish the publications of this fiiin.— Nation, Feb. 7, 1878. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



The population is from census of 1870, or recent estimate 
of resident postmasters or publishers — the latter case indicated 
by a dagger — c. h. stands for court house, county seat — m. for 
miles — pop. for population — r. for river, and Rd. for railroad. 

The circulation has been omitted in cases where a descrip- 
tion of the publications did not appear in the last edition of the 
Directory, and in some other cases for special reasons. 

Where no advertisements are taken for a publication, the 
matter of circulation, being unimportant, has been omitted, and 
the fact stated thus : " Does not insert advertisements.". 

Where publications are bought and circulated by persons 
and firms that advertise therein by means of descriptive articles 
in the reading columns, or devoted to the (almost) exclusive 
advertising of any particular person or firm, or to the adver- 
tising of any certain idea, or established solely as advertising 
schemes, embracing a class with circulations almost entirely 
gratuitous, they are termed " advertising sheets," and no circu- 
lation given 

ft Means that the Editor of the Directory at the time of 
going to press had no certain evidence that the paper so marked 
had suspended publication, but he was unable to secure any late 
issue, therefore no particulars are given. 

Where italic matter follows the description of a publica- 
tion, it is by order of the publisher, and is paid for as an adver- 
tisement. 

The publishers of the Directory assume no responsibility 
for any statements made in italic type, every publisher of a 
newspaper being allowed to print in that manner anything for 
which he is willing to pay the price demanded, viz.: twenty-five 
cents a line.

1 1. Both the Dailij and Weekly American 
circulates largely up and down the "Nauga- 
tuek Valley,'' one of the richest sections in 
the State, having the largest actual circula- 
tion in Western Connecticut. Its weekly edi- 
tion has, with one exception, the largest cir- 
culation in New Haven County, not excepting 
New Haven. Advertisers who have given it a 
trial consider it one of the best jJaying medi- 
ums in the State and the best in Western 
Connecticut. Waterbury manufactories, even 
during the past dull, discouraging times, 
have,without exception, paid regular divi- 
dends, which is due to the fact that the 
bra^ss interests have not suffered correspond- 
ingly with those of other classes. Three 
fourths of all brass and brass goods manufac- 
tured in the United States are made in Water- 
bury, it being the largest brass manufactur- 
ing city in the world. It is a self-evident fact 
that it is not always those papers whose issue 
is the largest that are the best paying adver- 
tising inediums, but those that circulate where 
there is the most money. The iveekly edition 
has a bona fide circulation of 2,i4S copies, and 
is a valuable advertising sheet, going into the 
best families and having an established repu- 
tation of over thirty-four years for enterprise 
and character, which causes its columns to be 
carefully read and its advertisements effect- 
ive.
