Before the American Revolution most schoolbooks used in the northeast were printed in England. Most American schoolbooks of the late 18th and early 19th centuries were printed in a major American city. These printing houses provided a wide array of services often printing newspapers, books, broadsides, and advertisements. Parents were expected to purchase books for their children from a list provided by their local District School Committee, since the schools did not provide books.
