Special Collections: German-American Imprints

MS 31 Broadsides of the German-American Imprint Collection

Vereinigung der Kinder im Gebet, Lebanon, PA, J. Schnee, 1813.

The following is a listing of Broadsides held by the Archives and Special Collections of the Franklin and Marshall College Library. The broadsides are listed alphabetical order by title as they appear in manuscript boxes and flat drawers. The bulk of this collection comes from the Unger-Bassler collection which was deposited at Franklin and Marshall in 1950. The alpha-numeric designations listed were most likely assigned during the processing of the materials at that time. No key to the alpha-numeric designations has been located. The collection of broadsides is housed in three manuscript boxes and five flat file drawers.

The inventory of the collection is divided into four parts :

Box 1 Das ABC through Fur Unterrichts - Kinder

Box 2 Gebet Lied through Nutzen und Gebrauch

Box 3 O, Susanna through Zwey schone Weltliche

Box 4 Oversized Das ABC through Zur Warnung

Approximately 1/4 of the Broadsides Collection has been digitized and is available at Scholars Square, the F&M Institutional Repository.
