Offers integrated access to Sections I - V of the digital project Eighteenth Century Journals. This project brings together rare journals printed between 1685 and 1815, illuminating all aspects of eighteenth-century social, political and literary life. Many are ephemeral, lasting only for a handful of issues, others run for several years. Topics covered are extremely wide-ranging and include: the writings of Sir Isaac Newton; the French Revolution; reviews of literature and fashion throughout Europe; political debates; and coffee house gossip and discussion.
Eighteenth Century Journals I contains material from the Hope Collection at the Bodleian Library, Oxford, one of the finest surviving collections of eighteenth-century periodicals. Inncludes 95 rare journals printed between 1693 and 1799, combining major publications with more ephemeral works to underline the broad variety of eighteenth century print journalism.
Eighteenth Century Journals II contains materials selected from The Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, which holds one of the finest collections of 17th and 18th century newspapers and periodicals in the world. These holdings were documented in British Newspapers and Periodicals, 1632-1800, compiled by Powell Stewart in 1950. More recent acquisitions have further enhanced these collections.
Eighteenth Century Journals III contains materials drawn from two sources: the British Newspaper Library at Colindale, London and Cambridge University Library. This section focuses on journals published outside of London. The inclusion of Canadian, Caribbean and Indian journals allows users to explore the ways in which major world events were reported in different areas of the globe. There are also a large number of Irish journals and British provincial publications
Eighteenth Century Journals IV consists of material sourced primarily from Chethams Library in Manchester. From its excellent 18th century holdings, a strong collection of rare magazines and newspapers, literary periodicals and political journals have been included to chart the transformation of Manchester during a time of rapid industrialisation and political turmoil. These varied sources are supplemented by a selection of periodicals, many European, from the Brotherton Library, University of Leeds.
Eighteenth Century Journals V includes the full run of The Lady's Magazine, 1770-1832 from the British Library, Birmingham Central Library and Cambridge University Library, along with other relevant titles that are social, cultural and literary in scope from Cambridge University Library and Liverpool John Moores University Library.
