A component of the Unger-Bassler German American Imprint Collection, this collection contains fine examples of printed broadsides designed and distributed among Pennsylvania Germans.

The collection (digitization in progress) can be searched by Keyword above, or browsed by Titles, Authors, or Subjects. Care was taken to indicate genre or type of broadside, printer, publisher, date, and location. In addition, interesting borders, artistic motifs, figures, or designs present on each broadside were noted.

The record for each broadside also contains a unique alpha-numeric code derived from an earlier inventory. It is conjectured that these codes were assigned during the original processing of the Unger-Bassler materials in the 1950s. While no key to the inventory has been located, the codes have been included in the digital collection to maintain bibliographic consistency.

Please link here for a complete finding aid to the collection including a bibliography of printed resources, and links to other digital broadside collections and exhibitions.

An Excel spreadsheet describing the collectionnulls metadata schema and genre terminology (controlled vocabulary) can be found here. Enjoy the collection!
