A clever, thoughtful, and funny history that reveals how the Union of states was built on a much more personal union of people.

What connects lonely homesteaders in 18th century New England to the millions of us today who use dating apps/websites to help find a partner? At once heartwarming and heartbreaking, Matrimony Inc. reveals the common thread that weaves its way through not just marriage and relationships over the centuries, but American social history itself: advertising for love.

Amazingly, America's first personal ad appeared in the Boston Evening Post as early as 1759. A "person who flatters himself that he shall not be thought disagreeable" was in search of a "young lady, between the age of eighteen and twenty-three, of a middling stature, brown hair, of good Morals..." As family-arranged marriages fell out of fashion, "Husband Wanted" or "Seeking Wife" ads were soon to be found in every state in the nation.

From the woman in a Wisconsin newspaper who wanted "no brainless dandy or foppish fool" to the man with a glass eye who placed an ad in the New York Times hoping to meet a woman with a glass eye, the many hundreds of personal ads that author Francesca Beauman has uncovered offer an extraordinary glimpse into the history of our hearts' desires, as well as a unique insight into American life as the frontier was settled and the cities grew. Personal ads played a surprisingly vital role in the West: couple by couple, shy smile by shy smile, letter by letter from a dusty, exhausted miner in California to a bored, frustrated seamstress in Ohio. Get ready for a new perspective on the making of modern America, a hundred words of typesetter's blurry black ink at a time.

"So anxious are our settlers for wives that they never ask a single lady her age. All they require is teeth," declared the Dubuque Iowa News in 1838 in a state where men outnumbered women three to one. While the dating pools of 21st century New York, Chicago or San Francisco might not be quite so dentally-fixated, Matrimony Inc. will put idly swiping right on Tinder into fascinating and vividly fresh historical context. What do women look for in a man? What do men look for in a woman? And how has this changed over the past 250 years?
