Title from caption.
Cobbett's American Political Register was the American edition of several volumes of the Political Register, which had been published in London since 1802 by the British journalist and reformer, William Cobbett. This weekly magazine was arranged as letters or essays written by Cobbett and addressed to the people of America; it mainly concerned the political affairs and government, as well as the social problems, of Great Britain. The Political Register was considered one of the greatest reform journals of the period, but because of his views Cobbett had to flee England several times. In 1817 he fled to the U.S., returning to England in 1819; thus his magazine was written in the U.S. during this period

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
