The James J. Periconi collection of Italian-language American imprints offers a unique insight into what Italian immigrants to the United States were reading, writing, and thinking about at the end of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries.

This website serves as a catalog of the collection and is intended as a resource for scholars of Italian-American history.
