Recommended Articles

I've read a few very interesting print articles recently (holiday travels are great for things like this) which I want to recommend, even though I can't link to the full text of them:

- Wayne Franklin, "Financing America's First Literary Boom." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society Volume 117, Part 2 (2007), pp. 351-378. [Abstract (scroll down a bit)]

- Sandra Rebok, "Enlightened Correspondents: The Transatlantic Dialogue of Thomas Jefferson and Alexander von Humboldt." Virginia Magazine of History and Biography Volume 116, No. 4 (2008) pp. 328-369. [Abstract]

- LĂșcia Lima Rodrigues and Russell Craig, "Recovery Amid Destruction: Manoel de Maya and the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755." Libraries & the Cultural Record 43:4 (2008), pp. 397-410. [Abstract]

- Edward A. Goedeken, "The Literature of American Library History, 2003-2005 ." Libraries & the Cultural Record 43:4 (2008), pp. 440-480. [Abstract]
