Holland, R. "Manhattan Sun." 1847-1848.
Holland was likely a young man when these two issues in very different formats were produced. In the first issue Holland writes, "The object of the editor of the M.S. will be to give his readers some scanty information relating to the movements of the mighty mass of men, women, & children who flourish in this great Empire City of the Western world." These are part of a growing collection of manuscript periodicals at AAS.
Given by Jo Radner, from the first annual Adopt-A-Book Catalog.
-Thomas G. Knoles, Curator of Manuscripts
"One day I am visited by a collector of ordination sermons; the next, by
a collector of 4th of July orations; then comes a collector of geography;
another wants religious newspapers; another wants every book printed in
New York before 1700. I accommodate myself to all; for I want every thing
and collect every thing, and I have more zeal than the whole of them: and
in this way I am kept very busy."
