This chapter provides an introduction to nineteenth-century scrapbooks. It describes how newspaper clipping scrapbooks served as a record of how people read and grappled with what they read; the people who made scrapbooks; the development of nineteenth-century newspaper clipping scrapbooks into today's photo-filled, family-centered scrapbooks; and nineteenth-century information management. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
