General Description and Notes:

Found in a scrapbook kept by John Green Oliver of Worcester, MA from 1874-1882, newspapers of other members of the New England Amateur Journalists’s Association, along with other memorabilia of his press activities, “all in meticulous emulation of professional job printing and the fraternal culture thereof.”

The Monthly Meteor is printed by hectography with holograph touch-ups and is thus partially handwritten, and is certainly a hand-made facsimile of a manuscript original.”
