American Circulating Libraries Not in Kaser

American Circulating Libraries Not in Kaser [pdf] is an ongoing list of American circulating libraries not found in David Kaser’s “Checklist of American Commercial Library Enterprises, 1762–1890,” a preliminary list of 439 circulating libraries, in A Book for a Sixpence: The Circulating Library in America. My checklist does not include the the Brooklyn circulating libraries (also not in Kaser) that were published in my 2006 article Yet More American Circulating Libraries: A Preliminary Checklist of Brooklyn (New York) Circulating Libraries, but only includes new circulating libraries that I’ve identified and which do not appear on Kaser’s checklist.
