Pennsylvania Publishers in our PA Imprints Collection – Hanover–Lancaster

Here is the next preliminary list of imprints from Pennsylvania cities and towns. It comes from the online catalog of the “Pennsylvania Imprints to 1865″ collection in the Rare Collections Library at the State Library of Pennsylvania. Printers and publishers are mixed together here, simply because that’s how these items have been cataloged over the years.  Furthermore, earlier catalogers may not have been overly fastidious about separating out firms with similar names (see, for example, the firm names grouped together under “Stiemer, Albrecht und Lahn”), although it has to be admitted that the printers themselves may not have seen corporate succession the same way we do today.

This is a preliminary list.  And the printer’s/publisher’s names are coming from the library catalog not directly from the books that were printed.
