“The Kentucky Spy and Porcupine Quill.”Frankfort, Kentucky, January 25, 1849. AAS Manuscript Periodical Collection. [catalog record]

The Story:

In recent years AAS has collected issues of pre-1877 American manuscript periodicals. These mimic printed periodicals in format, containing stories, news, and advertisements. They were produced by individuals, small groups or as an activity of a school or lyceum. Collectively they reveal much about American scribal culture. The Society’s collection now numbers more than sixty titles, including The Kentucky Spy and Porcupine Quill.
