In 1878, the main Shaker periodical changed title from The Shaker to The Shaker manifesto. At the same time, the place of publication moved from New York to Shaker Village, N.H. The New Hampshire printers composed a trial issue, not for general distribution, to assist in the transition from a folio to a quarto format. The articles were contributed in part by Shaker children. The trial issue carries the same numbering as the first issue of The Shaker manifesto but the content is completely different. Only 50 copies of the trial issue were printed. Cf. David D. Newell Shaker Literature
