This paper seeks to examine how Americans accessed periodical print (newspapers and magazines) during the course of the eighteenth century. This study discusses how pervasive periodicals had become in eighteenth-century America by assessing the distribution of periodicals by printers as well as contact with them by interested readers. Libraries, bookstores, taverns, and personal exchange all provided access to periodicals beyond subscriptions, but this process has received minimal attention by prior scholars. This paper will thus seek to explore this important development in greater depth.
