Highlights of Alabama Printing and Publishing: An Outline.
Wright, A. J.
This document consists of a chronology of historic events. There is no accompanying text. Divided into four sections, the outline succinctly sketches the development of printing and publishing in Alabama in the nineteenth century. The opening section, which lists early publications and their dates of first appearance, features newspapers, legal materials and public documents, political pamphlets and broadsides, literary works, periodicals, and miscellaneous books. Early printing conditions are summarized in the second section, which addresses Alabama settlement factors, means of transportation, four centers of early newspaper development, sources of income, and problems for newspaper editors. The third section profiles seven early Alabama printers, and the fourth provides a chronology of early printed works from the publication of a pamphlet in 1807 to the 1882 founding of the "Alabama Law Journal."
