Rowell's & Ayer's American Newspaper Directory

These volumes are available in two formats:

  • Page turners are collections of single page images that load very quickly.
  • PDFs of the whole book are very large (approximately 50MB+), and may take several minutes to load depending on your connection. However, once you get them, they are often searchable by keyword.
  • Because no one seems to have a complete collection, we have provided links of what we can find from the Library of Congress, the Hathi Trust and the Internet Archive.
