The Program in Early American Economy and Society at the Library Company of Philadelphia is grateful for assistance from many quarters. We especially want to thank the staff at the participating institutions for taking the time to give us physical and intellectual access to their collections. Without such support, this guide would not have been possible. In addition, Christian Koot, Donna Rilling, Susan Klepp, and Rachel Onuf gave us valuable assistance and advice as we undertook this survey.
