The American Stationer


 , or Hathi Trust v. Google Books.

[Posted on L&P on Mar 1, 2012, Dec 7, 2012, and Feb 10, 11, 2014.]
        Finally, there is a better source for digital quotes and references, that is, one that can be seen worldwide.  I think it’s time to stop using Google Books for this purpose, since it is only viewable in the US, and time to start using the Hathi Trust Digital Library, which is available around the world.  As an example, here are all the volumes of The American Stationer on Hathi with a few additions from The Wayback Machine, in the Internet Archive.  And for those of you in the US, there is also David Nishimuras list from Google Books, which is like an exclusive ’mercan club.

Here are the three Hathi index lists.

And here are those index lists combined.  The volumes marked “incomp” are incomplete.

You can’t download the whole volumes unless you have a password from one of the participating libraries, but you can link directly to individual pages on Hathi.  Alternatively, you can download individual pages to save images to create your own links.

Ad in Am. Stat., Oct 3, 1878, p.24.

Addendum, Dec 14, 2014, Nov 9, 2015, and Aug 3, 2016.
I have added the Hathi issues from 1923-1927.  Even though the links for these later volumes are supplied by Hathi, they are not available online.  If you click on these links, you get the message, “This item is not available online (Limited search only) due to copyright restrictions”, and if you perform a word search, say for the word “Duofold”, you get the message, “Full view is not available for this item due to copyright © restrictions”.  But maybe someday, soon . . .

Addendum, Aug 1, 2017.
I added volumes 47-56 from the gap between 43-58.
