|Abstract/Description:||"In view of his success in making notable contributions to the literature of America, this writer wondered as to why Carey, apparently an important contributor of his age, had received so little credit among the historians of American culture. This perplexity gave rise to this paper in which his contributions as an editor, publisher, and bookseller are being examined. In so doing his position among his contemporaries is being studied to ascertain his proper place among the leaders in the periodical world, and to discover when writers to whom he gave a helping hand lived through the years, why Carey, who encouraged them, published their works even though financial returns were very uncertain, and introduced them to the American public, fails to receive proper recognition"--Introduction.|
