A Selection of MRL Pamphlets

Recently while researching for MRL10: American Home Missionary Society Records, I had to pull some material from the MRL pamphlet collections.  The MRL pamphlet collection, which has been individually item-level cataloged and is available in CLIO, contains over 30,000 missionary reports and other publications. Many of these pamphlets are primary source materials and can often be valuable for the information contained within.

They also can have interesting topics or cover art. Below are a few that stood out during my search:

Henry F. Colby, “Five Great Reasons for Foreign Missions.” [1903]


Titus Coan, “
The Sailor's Sabbath; or, A Word from a Friend to Seamen.” [1846]


Doris M. Cochran, “Poisonous Reptiles of the World: A Wartime Handbook.” [1943]


Edwin L. Jones, “The Church in an Atomic Age.” [1947?]


All of the pamphlets are non-circulating, but they can be requested and reviewed during Special Collections hours. To do so, please fill out our Rare Books & Archives Request Form: http://library.columbia.edu/indiv/burke/materials_request_form.html.

One thought on “A Selection of MRL Pamphlets

  1. I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to add to the conversation. Usually
    it is caused by the fire displayed in the article I looked at.
    And after this post A Selection of MRL Pamphlets | The Burke Library Blog.
    I was actually excited enough to create a commenta response
    😉 I actually do have a few questions for you if
    you don’t mind. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of these comments come across like they are
    left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at
    other places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.

    Could you make a list every one of all your shared pages like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
