The American Sunday School Union was one of the leading publishers before the Civil War to make use of the emerging technology of lithography in its children’s picture books.  With offices in Philadelphia, Boston, New York, Saint Louis, Louisville, and Rochester, the ASSU had a truly nationwide reach that included individual consumers and Sunday schools open to children of all races and economic levels.  German American lithographer Augustus Kollner worked extensively for the ASSU.
