Editor/Publisher:  John Green Oliver (? – Letter calls the Amateur Gazette “his letterpress”)

Title Changes and Continuation: Unknown (possibly The Monthly Meteor)

General Description and Notes:

Letterpress compiled in a scrapbook by John Green Oliver of Worcester, MA, from 1874 to 1882, including newspapers of other members of the New England Amateur Journalists’ Association and assorted ephemera and memorabilia of his press activities, all in meticulous emulation of professional job printing and the fraternal culture thereof.

One of the newspapers in this collection, according to Sarah M. Black, Smith College Rare Book Room assistant (as of 1993), is Vol. 1, No. 1 of The Monthly Meteor, Dec. 1881 (28 pp.), including wrappers, which is “printed by hectography with holograph touch-ups and is thus partially handwritten and certainly a hand-made facsimile of a manuscript original.”
