HarpWeek (1857-1871)


HarpWeek provides electronic access to Harper's Weekly, the illustrated 19th century "Journal of Civilization". The HarpWeek Database consists of the pages of Harper's Weekly, scanned as images, together with a series of controlled-vocabulary indexes, which are interactively linked. The database is comprised of four separate indexes: subject, illustrations, literature & publishing, and advertising. Each of the four indexes can be searched independently of the remaining indexes, or in any subset combination, including a composite search of all indexes simultaneously.
