This project, sponsored by the American Antiquarian Society, continues the work of creating a database of images from the early years of Scientific American. The magazine, founded in the mid-nineteenth century, featured numerous engravings of recent inventions. Building upon the work of three previous projects, our group cataloged the illustrations from four volumes of the magazine (1855-1859) into a database created by a previous group. This project further explored the technical and business history of the engravings featured in the magazine, identifying for the first time some of the artists who created these illustrations.
