Content Roundup – First Week – July 2015

Front cover, Comfort, v. XXII, no. 12, October 1910

This week we bring a few new issues of the story-paper Comfort and a new religious dime novel to your attention. As well, a rare report on the reorganization of the Indian army from 1920 and a host of newly digitized newspapers from the Joseph McGarrity Collection are available. McGarrity, a noted collector of Irish books and periodicals, had an exceptionally strong set of rare newspaper titles – many of which deal with Ireland and the Irish-American experience, but his collection was not limited to just this focus. This week two non-Irish titles from the collection can be accessed: the rare Philadelphia newspaper the Constitutional diary and Philadelphia evening advertiser and the Newark, New Jersey title the Centinel of freedom spanning 1799-1800.
