Andrew Bradford, Founder of the Newspaper Press in the Middle States of America. An address delivered at the annual meeting of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, February 9th, 1869
Philadelphia: King & Baird, Printers. 1869. First. First edition. 36pp. With a folded facsimile. 24.5 cm. Printed wrappers, untrimmed. Inscribed by the author to Joseph Sabin, Esq. in neat ink on the half-title page. Chipping to the edges of the wraps, somewhat darkened and separated at the spine, with age-toning to the text pages, else very good. An apt association between Jones, vice president of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and author of a monograph on Andrew Bradford, Philadelphia's "second" most famous printer, and Joseph Sabin (1821-81), America's best known bibliophile, and a father of Americana. Sabin's Bibliotheca Americana a Dictionary of Books relating to America from its Discovery to the Present Time, begun in 1868 and completed in 1936, is a comprehensive catalog of "every book in every language which relates to, or has the slightest reference to America." Very scarce. No copies in OCLC. .
