The Readex U.S. Congressional Serial Set contains all publications from the 15th through the 96th Congresses, together with American State Papers (a retrospective collection of materials originating from 1789 through 1838 but published in the second quarter of the 19th century). The U.S. Congressional Serial Set (the bound, sequentially numbered volumes of all the Reports, Documents and Journals of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives) constitutes an incomparably rich collection of primary source material on all aspects of American history. During much of the 19th century, especially in the pre-Civil War era, the Serial Set included materials originating not only from the U.S. Congress but also key Executive Department publications that were published only or primarily in the U.S. Congressional Serial Set.
Date Coverage: 1817 - 1980; American State Papers: 1789 - 1838
