Early American Fiction 1789-1850

Description
Chadwyck-Healey has partnered with the University of Virginia Library, who in 1996 received a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to digitise and publish on the Web 560 rare volumes of early American fiction. Called Early American Fiction 1789–1850, the resulting collection provides electronic texts of a well-defined and comprehensive corpus of early American fiction. The texts chosen for the project include first printings of works by James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and other novels and short stories. The collection also includes what has been recognised as the first American novel, William Hill Brown's The Power of Sympathy, and extremely rare items such as the American printing of Susanna Haswell Rowson's Charlotte and Joseph Holt Ingraham's Alice May or The Lost of Mount Auburn. A complete list of titles included in the collection is available in the bibliography. In total, Early American Fiction 1789–1850 comprises 421 titles in 560 volumes by 81 authors, containing more than 125,000 pages.
