 Prefac e

During the pioneer period the printing press was not particularly
active in the area represented by the present State of Nevada. There
were few issues of the early Nevada press other than newspapers.

So it may be eacpected that any records of “melts:J pamphlets, and broad-
sides printed in Nevada during the early period will be a bit sparse.

This expectation is borne out by the list of Nevada imprints
earlier than 1891 which is presented in the following pages.

There has been no previous effort to compile any bibliographical
list of Nevada publications, therefore the present list represents an
excursion into virgin territory. Consequently it is not claimed that
the present list is complete or even nearly complete, for it is inevi—
table that in the preparation of any first list of local imprints many
ephemeral publications will be missed.

The present list represents, however, a careful and painstaking
effort to discover and record just as many Nevada imprints as could be
found, after extensive search in hundreds of libraries throughout the
country. The field data on which the list is based has been wholly com-
piled by workers of the American Imprints Inventory, and the list has
been edited by staff members of that organization.

The American mprints Inventory constitutes one branch of the work
of the Historical Records Survey of the Works Progress Administration.
Dr. Luther H. Evans has been National Director of the Historical Records
Survey since its inception. The program of recording early American
imprints in libraries throughout the country and preparing and issuing
regional check lists of these imprints was first undertaken about two and

a half years ago and has been prosecuted on a vigorous scale for the


 past W0 years.

Well over a thousand workers have been engaged during the past
year in recording books, pamphlets, and broadsides printed in the
United States earlier than 1877, and in eight western states (of which
Nevada is one) earlier than 1891. The titles of these imprints have
been sent in to a central clearing office in Chicago, where they have
been filed by place of printing and date. These title slips provide
the basis for compiling lists of the issues of the press of any region,
within any period earlier than the final date limits established.

The field work in Nevada libraries has been carried on under the
direction of Ray D. Harris, State Director of the Historical Records
Survey. The detailed editing of the present list has been done by
Dr. Lester Condit, a member of the editorial staff of the centralclearo-
ing office in Chicago, under the technical direction of Douglas C.
McMurtrie, National Editor of the American Imprints Inventory.

The first printing within the present limits of the State of
Nevada was done December 18, 1858, at Genoa in Carson Valley, when

Alfred James and W. L. Jernegan brought out the first issue of the



Territorial Enterprise. Despite the fact that the Territorial Enterprise
was the leading newspaper throughout the territorial period, no good
file of it has been preserved. However, an exceedingly rare pamphlet
printed in the office while it was at Canon has been preserved and is
represented by the first entry in the present list.

In November, 1859, the Territorial Enterprise moved to Carson City,


and here Jonathan Williams and I. B. Wollard became its proprietors.
In the fall of the following year they began to issue the paper as a
daily and moved it to Virginia City, which became and remained for may

years the economic if not the political capital of Nevada.



In December, 1860, a second press began operations in Nevada,
when Lewis 86 Sewall began publication of the 353333: .453. at Carson City.
This paper became a daily on September 5, 1861, but in‘the following
year its plant was purchased and removed to Virginia City to establish
a new paper in that conununity.

No attempt here will be made to provide a history of printing in
Nevada, but it may be helpful to give the Jmown dates, where these can
be determined, of the first printing in various Nevada communities

through the year 1875.

Among the 520 imprints recorded in this list, 416 (80%) are official
documents of the Territory or State of Nevada. 01‘ these 225 are executive,
51 are judicial, and 160 are legislative. Among the 104 unofficial publié-
cations (20% of the total), 52 are fraternal or social, 19 represent
industrial or business interests, 18 are professional or scientific, 14
are literary or historical, and only 1 (which cannot be located) is re-
ligious or philosophical. Of these, 355 were printed or published at
Carson City, 50 at Virginia City, 21 at Reno, and 15 elsewhere in the
state. In the Appendix will be found 84 publications of Nevada origin
which were printed outside Nevada, 80 of these bearing the imprints of
San Francisco printers.

To present ‘a conspectus of Nevada printing and publication from

1859 to 1890, inclusive, the following statistics may be tabulated:

these have been rather inadequately cataloged in libraries possessing
copies and they cannot always be easily located. To facilitate their

* Issued, but not present in table of contents to appendix; appendices"
with total numbers starred do not have table of contents.

Since this table was compiled, it has been discovered that not all
copies of the contents for the 13th and luth sessions are identical. It
has not been possible in this checklist to attempt to distinguish between
possible variants of these reports. In addition to c0pies bound in the
fippgndig and listed in the tables of contents, cOpies are to be found
which are bound separately. Sometimes cover—titles are reported, but more
frequently it would appear that the covers are missing or that the report


 l-viii {-

was issued without covers. One or two errata slips have been reported.
Comparison of copies might reveal two or three variants of the same re—

Since the official documents of the territory and state constitute
eighty per cent of the recorded Nevada imprints, some account of offi—
cial printing in Nevada may prove of interest. A humorous account of
the territorial printing may be read in Mark Twain's Roughing it.

Much of what he has to say is confirmed by extant typographical evi-
dence. The journals of the first session of the territorial legiSlature
were printed in San Francisco by Valentine & Company, but before an
appropriation could be made for the printing of the journals of the
second and third legislatures, Nevada was admitted to the Union, and
there seems to have been no desire on the part of the state legislature
to have these proceedings of the territorial legislature printed in
permanent form. The bills reported favorably in committee had been
printed by Israel Crawford at Carson City, where he continued as terri-

torial printer until his newspaper, The Carson Daily Independent, was


obliged to suspend publication. In the meanwhile the session laws were
printed. Those of the first territorial legislature Were printed in
San Francisco by Valentine 6c Company; those of the second session, at
Virginia. City by J. T. Goodman 8c Company; those of the third session,
at Virginia City by John Church & Company.

John Church became the first state printer. During the spring of
1865 he dissolved partnership with his associates in Virginia City,

disposed of his interest in the Virginia Daily Union and opened offices


at Carson City. It was Church who began the practice of iSSuing the

Appendix t2 the Journal 3f the Senate, which was merely a volume contain-



ing collected reports with a general title-page and table of contents.
In the appendix to the journal of the second session, no table of con-
tents is found.

After the election of Joseph E. Eckley as state printer in 1866,
his newspaper, @113 m M M, suspended publication. The sessions
of the legislature Were now made biennial, and all of‘the state printing
for the session of 1867 appears to have been executed. No service was
provided for official reports which could not be compiled before the
close of that year.

Henry R. Mighels, state printer for the fourth legislative session,
previously had been editor and later was publisher of the w 1333.31
weal. Subsequently he was speaker of the Nevada assembly. As state
printer, however, he was defeated for re~election.

Charles L. Perkins, the first Democrat to serve as state printer,
did not dispose of his interest in the Hmboldt Register until after his
installation in office. After Perkins had removed from Unionville to
Carson City, his newspaper removed from Unionville to Wirmemucca. He
continued the policies of his immediate predecessors, executing such
printing as was specifically authorized, expending such appropriations
as became available, and complying to the utmost of his ability with
statutory requirements.

In the election of 1872 the Republicans were successful, and
Charles A. V. Putnam was called from the proprietorship and editorship of
the MM gnpirg at Hamilton to the state printer's office. None
appears to have been more delighted than his local rivals, the publishers
of the w Bing Ms. Putnam was entrusted by the legislature with
much more printing than any of his predecessors. There was such an

increase in encecutive documents that he revived the Appendix to the


 Journal of the Senate, begun by John Church,'with its halfatitle and


table of contents. He was required to print, in addition to customary
documents, two volumes of the compiled laws of the State of Nevada, a
catalog of the state library, and the proceedings of the joint con—
vention of the legislature. The printing craftsmanship in Nevada dooué
ments new began to compare more favorably with that of documents of
California and Oregon.

During the campaign of 1874, when the Democrats sought a nominee
capable of improving upon the state printing, the choice fell upon an
independent candidate ~u John J. Hill, of'Winnemucca, editor and pube
lisher of Eh§_§il32£.§tatg. Due to his election he was obliged to
relinquish his editorial responsibilities, but he could not be induced
to dispose of his printing and publishing business. The neWspaper I
firm.was reorganized as John J. Hill & Company. A further increase is
now to be noted in printed executive reports. The title of the appendix

was now changed to Appendi§ to Journals 2: Senate and Assembly. It then



became a supplement rather than an appendix, since its contents were
too numerous and too bulky to be bound conveniently with the journal of
either house of the legislature. Reports possessing only a coverutitle
or caption title now decreased, but the aversion to title~pages
persisted. The half—title continued to be a favorite. However, Hill
printed his name on the verso of the halrétitle, thus making it a
titleepage in embryo.

Effective January 1, 1879, the office of state printer was
abolished, and a contract for the state printing was awarded to A. L.
Bancroft & Co., of San Francisco. As state printers and binders
they demonstrated that California craftsmanship was not inferior to

that of Nevada, but local pride demanded that the printing of state


 documents be executed in Nevada and that the craftsmanship be of
satisfactory standard. A bill was introduced into the legislature

by J . C. Harlow, creating the office of superintendent of state printing.
The term of office was fixed at four years. In order that popular
sovereignty might not be infringed upon, the office was made elective,
but the Board of State Printing Commissioners were authorized to appoint
a superintendent to act until the next general election.

J. W. Maddrill was appointed superintendent of state printing for
documents of the tenth session of the Legislature. Imprints then were
more frequent, but they varied. Some documents were issued from the
"State Office" and some from the "State Printing Office." Wherever the
printing was executed which he superintended, the documents Were published
at Carson City, where the superintendent maintained his office.

With the election of J. C. Harlow as superintendent in 1882, an in-
creased state investment in the printing business appears to have been
made. The superintendent was then required to submit a printed report
on the'work of the state printing office, and all branches of the govern-Q
ment 44- judicial as well as legislative and executive 4-— were required
to have their printing and binding done by the state printing office.
Harlow contimed in office for two terms, serving continuously from
1885 to 1891. Among the imprints listed in this check list, 106 are
attributable to him or bear his imprint.

Among the 104: unofficial publications, representing twenty per cent
of the total number, fully half (or 10% of the total) are fraternal or
social. Before 1880 practically all of them, with only one or two
notable exceptions, were printed in San Francisco. During the same
period the majority of other unofficial Nevada publications were printed

in San Francisco, but there are a few publications with imprints of Nevada


 neWspaper and job presses. Undoubtedly there are many extant imprints
of the period which have as yet escaped record.

Appropriately enough the largest number of titles located in may
institution is reported from the Nevada Historical Society which, in
the main portion of the list and in the addenda is credited with 504
titles. The splendid document collection of the Wisconsin Historical
Society is responsible for the location of 259 titles in that institu-
tion’s library, while 215 titles are located in the libraries of the
University of Pennsylvania. A total of 248 titles are located in the
libraries of the University of Chicago. Other libraries from which have

been reported considerable numbers of Nevada imprints or documents are:

maesachusetts State Library 147
Philadelphia Free Library 80
Harvard University 79
Society of California Pioneers 62
Virginia City Public Library 58
Library of Congress 51

These figures do not necessarily represent all the Nevada titles to
be found in the collections mentioned, for such statistics only could be
derived from a thorough checking of the list against the holdings of each
library. The figures cited represent only the copies reported by the
field workers of the American Imprints Inventory.

It should be pointed out that the statistical summaries in this
preface do not take into account the additional or revised titles to be
found among the addenda, but the few changes involved will not materially
affect the percentages herein stated.

The undersigned desires to express his special appreciation to the
director and workers of the Historical Records Survey in Nevada for the
care and patience they have displayed in providing much of the material
for the present list. And he further desires to record his appreciation

to Dr. Lester Condit for his scholarly and conscientious work in bringing


 - xiii -

materials from this and other sources into form for publication.

The librarians of practically all the collections in which these
Nevada titles are located have been exceedingly helpful in providing
detailed descriptions of individual imprints represented in their
collections. We desire to accord our appreciation to all of them
for their generous cooperation.

All the titles in this list have been cleared through the Union
Catalog of the Library of Congress, through the courtesy of its
Director, George A. Schwegmann, Jr. As a result, all of the titles
in the present list are now represented in the Uhion Catalog, being
there filed alphabetically by author.

The American Imprints Inventory is under cordial obligation to_
the Illinois state office of the Historical Records Survey, first,
under the directorship of Howard E. Colgan, and later, of Dr. Royal
S. Van de Wbestyne; for assistance in memeographing this check list

of Nevada imprints.
