In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Editors’ Note

We are delighted to offer in this special issue of American Periodicals four pieces that explore diverse aspects of advertising in eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century newspapers and magazines. The first three essays, introduced and curated by Carl Keyes, hail from a conference sponsored by the Center for Historic American Visual Culture and the Program in the History of the Book in American Culture at the American Antiquarian Society. These articles examine advertising for bibles, historical paraphernalia, commercial goods, and real estate in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. We add to these articles an essay that, while not part of the conference at the American Antiquarian Society, adds nicely to the conversation about the role of advertising and literary production in American periodicals by shifting attention to Harper’s in the late nineteenth century.
