FOREWORD 



THIS is a list of Rhode Island eighteenth-century publi- 
cations. It shows what the printing press of the colony 
and state produced before the year 1801, and where 
these early imprints may be found by investigators. The list 
gives a brief title of every book, pamphlet, newspaper, fly- 
sheet and broadside printed in Rhode Island during that 
period which has been found in the public and private libraries 
that are known to contain material relating to this state. 
Other titles, of which the originals have not been found, have 
been copied from the "Bibliography of Newport" compiled 
by Charles E. Hammett, Jun., and published in 1887; from 
Charles Evans's "American Bibliography, 1639-1789;" from 
Joseph Sabin's "Dictionary of Books relating to America, 
A-Sm;" and from the catalogues of booksellers and auction 
sales. 

The list was prepared by the John Carter Brown Library 
as part of an effort to learn what material is available for the 
study of the history of printing in America, and also for 
the purpose of securing data upon which to base an estimate of 
the number of eighteenth-century American imprints now in 
existence. 

The following pages contain the titles of 1 565 separate pub- 
lications printed between 1727 and 1800. The regular issues 
of a newspaper, as well as the supplements and usually the 
extra issues, are counted as one in each year. Over two-thirds 
of the whole number, 1089, are in the library of the Rhode Is- 
land Historical Society. This is probably a larger proportion 
of the early typographic output of a single state than exists in 
any other collection. Of the titles not in the Society's library, 
143 are elsewhere in Providence. As there are 72 entries 
based on records, of which no original copy is known to be now 
in existence, these figures show that over eighty-two per cent 
of what remains of eighteenth-century Rhode Island printing 
is accessible in its original form in this city. 

Of the total number of titles, 1125 date from before the year 
1790, the period so far covered by Mr. Evans's invaluable 

[1] 



" American Bibliography." Evans gives the titles of 808 Rhode 
Island imprints, or about seventy per cent of those in the 
present list. 

The concentration of this material in a single building is 
due largely to the generous co-operation of those who are in 
charge of the other libraries in Providence. For fifteen years 
it has been the recognized policy of the librarians of this city 
to work together in building up each of their collections in cer- 
tain clearly defined fields, and to avoid all possible duplication 
of material, with consequent waste of resources. With only 
two noticeable exceptions, where the wishes of donors pre- 
vented this policy from being carried out, the other libraries 
have systematically contributed to the Rhode Island Histori- 
cal Society everything that would help to make that institu- 
tion stronger in its special and appropriate field. 

In return, the Society has helped to provide every library in 
the state with a collection of books on Rhode Island history. 
It has contributed also from its accumulations in other subjects 
not so properly a part of its own collection, to the libraries of 
Brown University, the Providence Athenaeum and Public Li- 
brary, and the State Library. Quite recently it has arranged 
for the deposit of its large duplicate collection of Rhode Island 
newspapers with the American Antiquarian Society at Worces- 
ter, assuring for this state a prominent representation in the 
principal collection of American newspapers. To the Librarian 
of that Society, Clarence S. Brigham, the Historical Society 
is indebted more than to anyone else for the comprehensive 
character of its Rhode Island collection. 

So large a proportion of these titles belong to the Rhode Is- 
land Historical Society that no attempt has been made to lo- 
cate, in this printed list, other copies of those that are found 
in that collection. The nearest rival is the library gathered 
by Sidney S. Rider, which was given by Marsden J, Perry in 
1903 to Brown University, where it occupies a room in the John 
Hay Library building. The John Carter Brown Library, like- 
wise a part of Brown University, also possesses many of these 
titles. Many others, including some of the most important 
ones not found anywhere else, belong to Fred A. Arnold of 
Providence. This list is, indeed, largely an outgrowth of notes 
generously loaned by Mr. Arnold. Many of the Newport im- 

[2] 



prints belong to the Newport Historical Society, and the Red- 
wood Library in that city has an important collection of early 
newspapers. Several important broadsides and tracts not 
found elsewhere are in the George Haile Free Library at 
Warren, the Westerly Public Library, and in the collections 
of Dr. Roderick Terry of Newport and Mr. Henry Russell 
Drowne of New York. 

The Rhode Island Historical Society and the John Carter 
Brown Library are under deep obligations to the custodians and 
owners of each of the collections mentioned above, and to those 
in charge of the other libraries and archives which are named in 
the list, for information and friendly co-operation without 
which it could not have approached its present comprehensive- 
ness. The data was brought together by Miss Rebecca P. 
Steere of the John Carter Brown Library, and to her its 
thoroughness is due. 

The short-title, printer's name, and the location of a copy 
or of the evidence upon which it is included, are all that this 
list aims to give. No attempt is made to show the size of 
each publication, whether a folio compilation of laws or a three- 
page political manifesto. An exception is made in the case of 
broadsides, which include everything printed on one side only 
of a single sheet. One reason for specifying these is that the 
John Carter Brown Library has a set approaching complete- 
ness of photostat prints of the Rhode Island broadsides, as 
well as of many of the separately printed Acts of Assembly 
and some other smaller publications. The same library also 
has negatives of nearly all the extant copies of the Newport 
Mercury, issued before the end of the year 1776. It is pre- 
pared to furnish copies of any of these at cost to students or 
to other libraries. 

No systematic effort has been made to discover titles of 
books or broadsides which were probably, or in some cases 
certainly, printed, but which have apparently entirely disap- 
peared. The list contains, nevertheless, a number of these titles 
of publications which have not been found in any library. 
Most of these are taken from the " Schedules " of proceedings 
of the General Assembly. The Schedules preserve the record 
of payments made for printing several proclamations and 
separate laws, of which no copies have been found. These 

[3] 



have been included in the list, so far as they have been noted, 
when the reference seems to imply a separate publication and 
not merely the insertion of the document in the printer's news- 
paper. 

Other titles are taken from the advertisements in the contem- 
porary newspapers of books "just published." Most of the 
books so advertised were those that were printed elsewhere 
and offered for sale at the local bookshop. The advertiser did 
not always distinguish clearly between the things printed on 
his own press and those which he imported from Boston or 
Philadelphia. Some of the titles in Evans's Bibliography, 
especially those ascribed by him to Bennett Wheeler's press, 
of which no copies have been found, were very likely not 
printed in Providence. 

The Rhode Island printers may sometimes have produced 
books which do not appear in this list because they were printed 
for booksellers elsewhere, with only the name of the publisher 
on the title page, and nothing to show where the actual print- 
ing was done. The number of these must be small, but there is 
at least one, a " F'ourth Edition " of the Letters of Lady Mary 
Montagu, with the imprint "New York: Printed Mdcclxvi." 
This book seems to be typographically identical with one which 
has the imprint : " Providence, in New-England : Printed and 
sold by Sarah Goddard, and Company. M,dcc,lxvi." It is 
thought that this was printed by Mrs. Goddard for the New 
York trade, and that she issued a few copies for local sale. 
Such a proceeding would probably not have been considered 
in any way improper at that time, however annoying it may 
prove to later bibliographers. 

Necessarily far from being absolutely complete, this list 
probably includes every sort of thing that came from the 
colonial printers, which was intended to be read. It does not 
include the things which were of primary importance to the 
printers themselves, because they went furthest toward finding 
a steady sale for ready money. The most profitable work 
done by the early presses, with the possible exception of the 
Almanacks, was the printing of legal and commercial blank- 
forms. It is obviously impossible to include these in such a 
list as this, for the number of different impressions of each form, 
such as those for deeds or mortgages, was countless, and few 

[4] 



of them contain the printer's name or date. The earliest of 
these forms produced by James Franklin soon after he set up 
the first press at Newport, may be recognized with consider- 
able certainty, and some of them have typographic interest. 
Franklin's son produced a very good-looking portage bill for 
the signatures of mariners joining a voyage, of which he was 
apparently proud, for he put his name on it. Solomon South- 
wick also put his name on an issue of these important mari- 
time documents, as may be seen on the facsimile of one which 
is the frontispiece to the volume on Rhode Island Commerce 
published by the Massachusetts Historical Society. For the 
most part, however, all of these forms were printed and re- 
printed to meet the demands of trade, and the bulk of them 
are without interest of any sort, except as their total num- 
ber shows how the printers made a living. 

The advertisement at the end of the Rev. James Honeyman's 
" Faults on all Sides," printed at Newport in 1728, concludes 
with the statement that " Bonds, Bills, Powers of Attorney, 
Paper by the Ream, Snuff, Tea and Coffee by the Pound or 
Ounce, may be had at reasonable Rates." Every printer who 
established his press in a new community, busied himself to 
provide as soon as possible these and all other forms for which 
there was a demand. In the third issue of his "Providence 
Gazette," William Goddard announced "to be sold cheap for 
ready Money, At the Printing-Office near the Court-House 
(the old State House between North Main and Benefit Streets), 
A Variety of Books, Stationary, &c. &c. Among which are 

" Blanks, Policies of Insurance, Portage Bills, Bills of Lading 
and Sale, Letters of Attorney, Administration Bonds, com- 
mon Bonds, Deeds, Writs, and Executions, and all Kinds of 
Blanks used in this Colony, neatly printed, and sold as cheap 
as at any Printing-Ofiice in New-England, or elsewhere ; 
either Wholesale or Retail." 

Many different printings of these various forms have been 
noted during the collection of the data for this list. In addi- 
tion to those advertised by the printers for public sale, there 
were blank forms for apprenticeship, colony and town trea- 
surers' notes, and later bank notes, bills of exchange, clearance 
and other customs-house papers, deeds of sale, military com- 
missions, enlistment papers, regimental and company returns 

[5] 



of men, arms and accoutrements, bills of sale for shares in 
privateers, tavern licenses, and tickets for the long succes- 
sion of lotteries. 

Under each year, beginning about the middle of the cen- 
tury, might have been added to the list at least one " Prox " 
or ballot for the general officers who were named at the May 
session of the Assembly. Most of these have at the top the 
sentiment or battle-cry of the partisans whose leaders are 
named on the ballot, and a few of them were dated. Much 
research will be necessary, however, before they can all be 
placed in order with certainty. Those which contain the names 
of the successful candidates can be assigned to the proper 
year without great difficulty. It is not often as easy to be 
certain of the year in which those were circulated that con- 
tain names which were not chosen. The Rhode Island Histori- 
cal Society possesses a large proportion, although probably not 
all, of these old election proxies, awaiting the attention of some 
investigator into the political byways of Colonial times.
