Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Spring 2011) collection of periodicals. Complete runs of The American Review: A Whig Journal and the United States Magazine and Democratic Review filled library shelves. The paucity of religious works is the one area in which the library does not resemble a typical middle-class American parlor. This may reflect Fillmore's respect for the division of church and state in spending public monies. Parisian is to be commended for the extent of bibliographic information provided for each entry in the catalogue, although it is often more than the average reader needs. The First White House Library is an impressive work of reconstruction and a revealing snapshot of the reading interests of mid nineteenthcentury Americans. This reviewer hopes that the catalogue will also see a digital publication. An online catalogue, perhaps with links to digital surrogates in Google Books or other digital archives, would make for an outstanding resource for educators and researchers alike. Ky le B. Rob ert s is a postdoctoral research fellow at Queen Mary, University of London. He is currently finishing the manuscript for his first book, Evangelical Gotham: Religion and the Making of New York City, 1783­1860, and creating the
