Pennsylvania Dutchman (Periodical) Collection

A component of the Unger-Bassler German American Imprint Collection, this collection contains fine examples of printed broadsides designed and distributed among Pennsylvania Germans. More information can be found in the collection finding aid, including a bibliography of printed resources, and links to other digital broadside collections and exhibitions.

 

During the digitization project, care was taken to indicate genre or type of broadside, printer, publisher, date, and location. In addition, interesting borders, artistic motifs, figures, or designs present on each broadside were noted. The record for each broadside also contains a unique alpha-numeric code derived from an earlier inventory. It is conjectured that these codes were assigned during the original processing of the Unger-Bassler materials in the 1950s. While no key to the inventory has been located, the codes have been included in the digital collection to maintain bibliographic consistency.
