Historic Pittsburgh Collection


Brookhaven Press is pleased to offer in hardbound format the books from the Historic Pittsburgh Collection.

This collection, developed by the University of Pittsburgh and the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, offers researchers an opportunity to use primary source materials that have been difficult to access--until now. The titles in this collection span more than 115 years of Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania history.

In this collection, scholars and family historians alike will find first hand accounts of Pittsburgh historical events and social life, government and city bureau reports, almanacs and directories and souvenir booklets for Pittsburgh area celebrations.

The Historic Pittsburgh Collection also contains secondary sources such as biographies and monographs about Pittsburgh and local area history. Other interpretive historical texts such as stories, poetry, and folklore about Pittsburgh are being added.

And now you can own the titles in this collection. In 1999, Northern Micrographics (sister company to Brookhaven Press) was hired to scan the collection and continues to do so as more titles are added. In 2001, Brookhaven Press became the printer and distributor of these titles.

Like all Brookhaven Press books, the titles from the Historic Pittsburgh catalog are printed on acid free paper and bound to Library Binding Institute specifications.
