Pennsylvania Publishers in our PA Imprints Collection – Philadelphia “C”

Here is the newest installment of the preliminary list of imprints from Pennsylvania cities and towns. This post includes printers and publishers from Philadelphia whose names start with the letter “C”.  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.  Some names may eventually be merged with or separated from similar names (for example, just how many “Carey” entries do we need?).  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.  This means you can’t always tell exactly what is printed on the title page.

  1. I realize this post is almost six years old now, but I am researching a book I found in an abandoned barn in Knoxville TN. It is called A Treatise of Practical Surveying by Robert Gibson. It was printed by Joseph & James Crukshank No. 87 High-Street Philadelphia 1803. I am wondering if anyone has any information on the author or publishers as it is hard to come across anything so far. If you would email me at chrisggard@gmail.com I’d really appreciate it.

  2. I OWN A COPY OF CAREY, STEWART & CO BOOK DATED 1791 AND CALLED THE AMERICAN MUSEUM or UNIVERSAL MAGAZINE. IT WAS PRINTED IN PHILADELPHIA, PA 1791.
    DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO WOULD HAVE AN INTEREST IN THIS RARE BOOK?
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND KIND CONSIDERATION.
    SINCERELY
    ROBERT KERECZ
