Printing was introduced into North Carolina in 1749 when James Davis set up a press at New Bern. Davis served North Carolina as its official typographer for many years, printing both official documents and general literature. The vast majority of extant North Carolina imprints are of his printing. This book is a bibliography of those and other imprints available to the historian.

Originally published in 1938.
