A New Jersey Printer's "Pocket Memorandum" for 1795.

Richard F. Hixson


Hixson looks at Isaac Collins's personal copy of a 1795 pocket almanac in which he wrote of business activity in his Trenton printing shop.  The almanac is useful in providing insight into certain aspects of the printing trade in New Jersey during the closing years of the 18th century.  Isaac Collins (1746-1817) is considered to be New Jersey's senior printer.
