Bibliography of Studies of Eighteenth-Century Journalism, the Periodical Press,

and Serial Publications in 1985-2015
This bibliography surveys scholarship published from 1985 to 2015 on journalism, diverse serials (including almanacs and calendars), and the periodical press throughout Europe and the Americas during the "long eighteenth century," approximately 1660-1820. It is most inclusive for the years 1990-2014, in consequence of my compiling for those years Section 1--"Printing and Bibliographical Studies"--of the ECCB: Eighteenth-Century Current Bibliography, until recently known as The Eighteenth Century: A Current Bibliography). It focuses on printed scholarship regarding Europe and the Americas, but many electronic publications have been included. Dissertations and book reviews are included. A 2015 revision corrected some errors and expanded it from 152 to 184 pages, and this revision in February 2016 expands it further to 211 pages, particularly increasing the coverage of newspapers and periodicals in Dutch and Spanish. For previous editions, I received additions and corrections from James E. Tierney, Mr. Harold Braem of Hildesheim (who provided titles from his “Historische Zeitungen: Privatarchiv der deutschsprachigen Presse des 17.-19. Jahrhunderts”), Marie Mercier-Faivre, Eric Francalanza, Rudj Gorian, and Charles A. Knight. Up until the mid 1990s, I was indebted to Diana Dixon’s annual bibliographies in a group of related serials: Journal of Newspaper and Periodical History (London, 1984-1994), Studies in Newspaper and Periodical History (Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1994-1997), Media History (1999-2002). I also then drew upon Sam Riley’s and Kim Martin Long's checklists in issues of American Periodicals. Recently I’ve relied heavily on Dialnet, Project Muse, and other venders of scholarly articles, scholars’ journals’ and presses’ websites, OCLC’s Worldcat, the two premiere on-line bibliographies: MHRA's Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature (the printed volumes once having chapters on periodicals) and the Modern Language Association’s International Bibliography, and the superb electronic quarterly L’Almanacco bibliografico--for over ten years now the most useful bibliographical review in any language. This bibliography was formerly posted on Kevin Berland's C18-L website, but was moved in June 2003 to BibSite and repeatedly enriched. I hope that its presence here will support and call attention to the Bibliographical Society of America's William E. Mitchell Prize for research on eighteenth-century British serials. (See the Society's home-page for information on this prize offered to the best book, article, or thesis every three years--the next deadline in fall 2017.) Some studies touching on the periodical press, inadvertently not included here, will be found in my other bibliographies on BibSite, particularly those involving authorship, censorship, and publishing. Finally, I thank the Bibliographical Society of America for this posting on BibSite, particularly Christina Geiger of Bonhams, and I apologize to scholars for inaccuracies and for works overlooked.

Worcester, MA: American Antiquarian Society, 1994. Pp. lxxxix + 1456; appendices; bibliography; index; prefatory explanations. [A monumental labor involving decades of work at over 700 libraries. Following an historical introduction, Albaugh offers his important bibliography describing 590 distinct religious periodicals and newspapers published during the period, noting their variant titles, providing publication information on them (Vol. 1: A-O; Vol. 2: P-Z, plus appendices, bibliographies, and index). James Tierney writes that "Appendix I lists 124 periodical titles garnered from various sources but which Albaugh's research determined were never actually published. Especially valuable are Appendices 2-4, which afford extremely handy tools by which scholars with special interests can negotiate the otherwise daunting 1,077-page bibliography itself. For those requiring access to periodicals and newspapers from a particular year(s), a 'Chronological List of Titles by Years of Founding' (Appendix 2) quickly identifies appropriate titles in the main bibliography. Likewise, a 'Geographical List of Titles by States and Cities or Towns of Publication' (Appendix 3) lists those publications associated with a particular geographical area. For those interested in studying a particular religious persuasion, 'Titles Arranged by Major Religious Interests' (Appendix IV) ranges all entries in the bibliography under headings that identify each publication's raison d'être (Calvinism, Universalism, human service, etc.). The indices are followed by bibliographies of microform catalogues used for the project and of secondary sources. Finally, another valuable resource appears in the 'Index of Editors, Publishers, Printers, Illustrations [perhaps a misprint for 'Illustrators'], and Engravers,' a double-columned 68-page listing of journalists and tradesmen mentioned in the annotation to the main bibliography. A seasoned researcher himself, Albaugh knew the kind of research devices scholars need." Rev.

Winner of the Bibliographical Society of America's 2006 William L. Mitchell Prize for Bibliography or Documentary Work on Early British Periodicals or Newspapers.

The original numbers 7, 26, and 30 were cut from the collected edition and a new concluding essay was added; the numbers were rearranged "to group them more logically by topic" (p. 43). Rivers adds Hogarth's frontispiece, Amhurst's preface to the first collected edition, and an advertisement to readers. In an appendix, Rivers offers a helpful comparative key to the dates of the original and the dates assigned in the collected edition.
