For example, B B 1 is better than B 1, but not as good as A. 



Cases ill which Circulation Quotations are not given. 

1st. When a paper is for the first time described in the Directory. 

2d. When a paper has been published less than one year. 

When all or part of the circulation is obtained by gratuitous distribution, 
or when, from conflictiag reports, it is not possible to form an opinion, the 
circulation is marked X.

PREFACE. 



In 1861 less than eighty pages of an almost iniiiiature 
volume sufficed to contain a catalogue (doubtless adequate in its 
plan to tlie demands of the time) of all newspapers and periodi- 
cals then published in the United States and Territories. With 
a population of 31,413,321, there were 5,253 publications of all 
kinds, or one to 5,985 inhabitants. The dailies numbered 450 ; 
the weeklies 4,273 ; the semi-monthlies and monthlies together 
356 ; the tri-weeklies 74 ; the semi-weeklies 63 ; and the quarter- 
Hes 38. 

In the present and thii'teenth annual edition of the 
Amekican Newspaper Directory, the names of 10,846 newspapers 
and periodicals in the United States, the Territories and Canada 
are given. Excluding Canada, 10,267 are issued in the United 
States and the Territories ; being an increase of 544 over the 
corresponding 9,723 mentioned in the edition of the Directory 
for 1880, and an increase of 5,014 over the 5,253 issued just 
twenty years ago. The American Republic, among all nations, 
is the first of which it may be said that it possesses more than 
ten thousand papers. It is noteworthy that while the increase in 
population since 1861 reaches little more than 60 per cent., the 
^Towth in the number of papers is over 95 per cent. : so that 
there is now one paper to 4,883 inhabitants. The dailies have 
more than doubled in number, and the weeklies exliibit a great 
ratio of increase ; while the comj^aratively few monthlies existing 
in 1861 have arrived at the handsome total of 969. This great 
addition to monthlies is due mainly to the establishment, during 
later years, of trade and other ^ class " publications, which, 
while they are thought more or less indispensable to their 
respective constituencies, are yet able to fulfil theii' missions in 
twelve issues a year. Some of the towns that boasted of news- 
papers two decades since cannot now be found on the map, while 
others that did not then exist now issue first-class journals. In 
the Territories there was then not a single dail}^, though 32 
w^eeklies were printed; at the present time the proportion of 
dailies to weeklies in the Territories and adjoining States is more 
than one to five. In thus contrasting the past with the present, 
it is interesting to observe, as an instance of the growth in the 
appreciation and support accorded by newspaper publishers to 
an enterprise which aims to be a creditable record of the Ameri- 
can Press, that while the sphit of 1861 contented itself with an 
array of twenty-eight pages of space advertisements in the little 
work referred to above, there are in the American Newspaper 
Directory for 1881 no less than two thousand two hundred of 
such advertisements, requiring, with the catalogue, a massive 
volume of over twelve hundi'ed pages. 



EXPLANATIONS. 

The population is from census of 1880, except for places not 
yet reported in the Census Bulletins. In such cases a report of 
the census figures has been secui-ed from resident postmasters 
whenever it was found practicable. 

Where publications are bought and cii'culated by persons 
and firms that advertise therein by means of descriptive articles 
in the reading columns, or are 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 cii'cu- 
lation rating given. 

Wliere 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." 

tt 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 could give no particulars. 

AVliere italic matter follows the description of a publication, 
it is by order of the pubHsher, and is paid for as an advertise- 
ment. The publishers of the Directory assume no responsibihty 
for any statements made in itahc tj^pe. In future editions all 
advertising matter of this sort will be excluded. 

Small engravings of newspaper buildings on solid 
metal bodies, occupying space of one inch in length 
or width, and no more, subject to approval on inspec- 
tion, are inserted with the description of the paper 
without any charge. Messrs. Crosscup & West, No. 
702 Chestnut street, Philadelphia, are good parties 
to furnish the engravings requii'ed, and have made all, 
or nearl}^ all, which now appeal' in the book. 

The Directory is reissued annually. The work upon its 
revision proceeds all the time. Advertisers, Publishers and the 
general public are besought to lend theu' aid by calling attention 
to any shortcomings. The book can never be made perfect, but 
no pains will be spared to sustain the position which it has 
attained in the good opinion of advertisers and publishers. 

From Publishers of Newspapers who furnish information 
upon which the report of ch'culation may be based, a memoran- 
dum is asked of the actual issues for each number of the paper 
for the three preceding months. Each publisher sending such 
a report is desii'ed to make it as definite and exact, as to dates 
and figui'es, as he would wish to require from a rival publisher, — 
were a comparison, based upon the two reports, to be instituted 
between the two papers.
