Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: Early American Fiction 1789-1875 is the product of a unique collaboration between ProQuest and the University of Virginia Library. In 1996 University of Virginia Libraryreceived a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to digitize and publish its unique collections of early American fiction. This made possible the first Chadwyck-Healey Early American Fiction 1789-1850 database, completed in 2000, which offered preservation-quality facsimile page images and keyword-searchable full text for more than four hundred works of American fiction published before 1850. Early American Fiction 1789-1875, the second phase of this project, has been made possible by further sponsorship from the Mellon Foundation. The collection stretches from the revolutionary period to the Reconstruction era, and includes works by authors such as Herman Melville, Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, Bret Harte and a host of minor writers of the period.
