The Weekly Register; Niles’ Weekly Register, Niles’ National Register. A Complete Run in 76 volumes. William Ogden Niles Hezekiah Niles,  Jeremiah Hughes, George Beatty.
The Weekly Register; Niles’ Weekly Register, Niles’ National Register. A Complete Run in 76 volumes.
Baltimore, Washington, DC, Philadelphia: 1811-1849. Philadelphia, 1811-1849. 76 Volumes, [volume 76 in facsimile as published by Burt Franklin]. Index [1811-1817]. Complete with ALL addenda and supplements. Niles' Register was one of the great weekly magazines of the early nineteenth century with a national circulation comparable to today's Newsweek or Time. Hezekiah Niles founded the magazine in 1811 and served as its editor and publisher until 1836. He sought to bring a balanced perspective of national and world events to his readers. As a record of early nineteenth century American politics and economics, nothing compares to the over 30,000 pages of reprints of public documents, treaties, statistical data, articles on the War of 1812, the Mexican American War, the expansion of the nation, news from other newspapers, and a wealth of other information contained in Niles’ Register. Thomas Jefferson wrote, "I have found it very valuable as a Repository of documents, original papers and the facts of the day, and the ease with which the index enables us to turn to them." The Register was mailed out every Saturday with one rare interruption in circulation during the War of 1812 "when all the employees 'one small boy excepted' were engaged in military duties" defending Baltimore. Niles’ Register essentially ceased publication with the June 27th, 1849 issue. Three single issues of volume 76 were published in September of 1849, numbers 13, 14, and 15; numbers 1 to 12 apparently were never published. Of the 76 volumes, 22 are in their original bindings (quarter, half, there quarter, or full leather) and housed in custom clamshell boxes with brown cloth sides and paper labels on the backs; the remaining 53 volumes are re-cased in uniform brown cloth with paper spine labels. The facsimile volume consisting of three issues of volume 76 is bound in blue cloth with gilt titling on the spine. The leather bindings are in very good condition, and there is an occasional lightly inked page, and occasional foxing. Yes, you can find digital copies of Niles’ Register online, but they do not equal the quality of type on paper in the bound volumes. Niles’ Register is perhaps the most valuable resource for the history of early nineteenth century America. It is rarely found complete, and it took many years to acquire the volumes that create this set.
