These pamphlets range from publication dates in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth century, with the bulk published in the 1800s.

McDade. The nineteenth-century pamphlets in this collection were drawn from the holdings of the Research Library of the New York State Historical Association (NYSHA) in Cooperstown, New York. NYSHA's collection of murder pamphlets contains 400 items published primarily in the 18th-19th centuries.
