Welcome to Sullivan Press

Welcome to our website!

Update September, 2015

Around September 20, 1989, (26 years ago), I decided to try my hand at sutlering. I set up a small table (loaned to me by a fellow sutler) in front of an A tent, and Sullivan Press was born. A couple of people purchased some items, and the die was cast. I want to thank the hundreds (maybe thousands) of people who have supported my work these past 26 years, and want to let you know that I look forward to many more years doing this. I will continually search for more items to reproduce, and better ways to bring these items to you. Thank you for your support.

Update August, 2015

Everyone is home for a bit, returning from college and overseas. I’m a bit behind now in processing orders, due to family time.¬†My daughters return to college on the 15th, so I’ll get back to work on Monday the 16th. It’s getting rarer and rarer to have everyone home, and it’s nice.

Update July 19, 2015

We are happy to announce the availability of two new Dime Novels.

Seth Jones was one of the most famous dime novels ever sold. In an era when 2.000 copies of a book was considered a success, a mass marketing campaign caused sales of 60,000 copies of this book when published in October of 1860.

Chip the Cave Child was the 6th dime novel ever offered for sale by Beadle and Adams. I can’t provide any specific details about the sales of the book, but with a title like that, I just had to reproduce it.

Look for both titles in our Civil War Books section.

Update – June 23, 2015

We are VERY excited to announce our latest product, Can Ends. We have always been a bit disappointed that our labels hid most of the can, but not all. Now, you can place a can end on the can and make it look like a 19th century can. Price for each “end” is $5.

When placing an order, remember that there is no area to enter credit card information. We don’t charge cards until the order is ready to ship, so if you would like to email your information in a separate email you may. But don’t worry that there’s no place to enter the information, we’ll contact you.

For any questions  or to phone an order, please call us at 610-286-7905 between 5 PM and 8:30 PM, Eastern time.

Or send us an email: email Image Thanks,

Bob Sullivan
