Adams, Charles Francis, 1835-1915. Topical pamphlet collection, <1741>-<1996>.

Topical pamphlet collection, <1741>-<1996>.

A long-established, artificial, still-growing collection consisting largely of printed pamphlets, with articles, reprints, some ephemera, typescripts, photocopied manuscript material, and one set of slides (to accompany a typescript item) also included. Some of the items within were bound during the 19th century, some are loose. Covering a broad range of topics relating to American (and particularly New England) history, life, and thought, the Topical Pamphlet Collection provides background and context for the more specifically Concord-related materials in the Concord Free Public Library Special Collections. The collection--not to be confused with the Concord Pamphlet Collection--includes <883> items, dating from <1741> to <1996>. Series I (Historical Topics) includes <352> items dating between <1741> and <1996>, Series II (Individuals, As Author or Subject) <300> items between <1761> and <1963>, Series III (Massachusetts Towns--History, Anniversaries, Description, etc.) <127> items between <1748> and <1991>, and Series IV (Pamphlet Materials on Multiple Topics, Organized by Form) <104> items between <1752> and <1940>. Some of the bound volumes include the occasional out-of-scope pamphlet. Moreover, there is some topical overlap of material in different subseries.
