Trial: Mercantile Newspapers

American Business: Mercantile Newspapers provides statistics-laden content from nearly 500 papers in a genre spawned by the rapid growth of shipping and international trade. Targeting wealthy merchants, professionals, and the educated elite, mercantile papers often were voluminous with a very large format, making production and subscription expensive. Much of the included information is unavailable elsewhere. Covers 1793-1900. Trial runs until May 31, 2017.
