Sometimes type choices of the past seem, well, bizarre. This chunky, hard-to-read font appears in a Reading, Pennsylvania, newspaper advertisement from April 1825. The sales bazaar being promoted included furniture, fabric, lace, gloves and artificial flowers. We'd shop there! #typeTuesday #aasnewspapers #advertisement #fonts #weneedatimemachine

In honor of the lost moose that was outside the library this morning, enjoy this lithograph of Alces americana†…

It's great to hear this kind of feedback. We hope you'll attend many more lunches in the future!…

Tonight in the reading room at 7pm!…

This copy of an 1822 edition of the New England primer (published in Brookfield, Massachusetts) was spotted on the duplicate shelf by one of our catalogers. She was attracted to the paper on the cover, which is a delightful pink color (see the other pictures for shots of the covers). The volume is hanging out with duplicates because AAS already holds a printing. But don't worry, little book -- your pink paper may save you yet. We often retain dups with variant bindings in order to present a fuller picture of book production and consumption. #tinyTuesday #primer #prettyinpink #wallpaper #bookbinding

Microscopic or miniature writing was popular in the 19th century. In 1853, clergyman Samuel Dana of Marblehead, Massachusetts, wrote out the Lord's Prayer as the "Pater Noster repeated" in a circular pattern no larger than a gold coin. This kind of writing was meant to show off penmanship skills, force concentration, and generally illicit comment and discussion. #miniatureMonday #aasmanuscript #manuscriptMonday #handwriting

There's a lot of buzz happening about the "Declaring Independence - Then and Now" program happening at Antiquarian Hall tomorrow night! We hope you'll be part of the crowd.
On July 14, 1776, an express rider carrying a copy of the Declaration of Independence, signed 10 days earlier in Philadelphia, reached Worcester en route

This charming combed paper was used as a cover on a 1797 pamphlet printed in Spanish-Town, Jamaica. "Regulations to be Observed in the Regimental Hospitals of the Several Corps in Jamaica" is full of directives explaining the relationship between British army officers and military physicians. At the hospitals, the doctors were in charge and all twenty regulations underscore this fact, as well as spelling out the duties of each member of the hospital staff. #aas_marbling #marbledmonday #rarebook #Jamaica
