Diane Publishing Books
Annals of American Bookselling, 1638-1850
Henry Walcott Boynton (au); Joseph Rosenblum (in)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
This book by Henry Boynton first appeared in 1932 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of its publisher, John Wiley and Sons, which had been started by Charles Wiley in 1807. The volume does not offer a precise chronology; it focuses on publishers and printers more than on those who just sold books; and its America is limited to the eastern seaboard, esp. Boston, N.Y. and Phila. His interest lay in the colorful figures that populated the book world of early America. Still, he tells a fascinating story in an entertaining manner. By 1850 American literature, like American publishing, had matured. Publishing in the U.S. would continue to expand, yet Boynton’s decision to end his account in 1850 is sensible, for by then the book had entered the modern age. Illus.
