Pennsylvania Publishers in our PA Imprints Collection – Lebanon-Orwigsburg

Here is the new installment on the 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.

This is a preliminary list.  Printers and publishers are mixed together here.  And some names will eventually either be merged with or separated from similar names (see, for example, the Millers in New Berlin).  Finally, note that the printer’s/publisher’s names are listed here as they appear in the library catalog and are not taken directly from the books themselves (library cataloging rules have directed past catalogers to enter “Blogger” or “S. Blogger” for “Samuel Blogger” and this means you can’t always tell exactly what is printed on the title page just by looking in the catalog).
