The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Rich in titles on English life and social history, this collection spans the world as it was known to eighteenth-century historians and explorers. Titles include a wealth of travel accounts and diaries, histories of nations from throughout the world, and maps and charts of a world that was still being discovered. Students of the War of American Independence will find fascinating accounts from the British side of conflict.

Trinity College Library Watkinson Collection


Edited by John Nichols. Issued in 52 parts. "The original plan .. was to preserve, .. some valuable articles of British Topography; to be published in occasional Numbers, neither confined to stated periods of Time, nor to any given quantity of sheets: but paged in such a manner that the general articles, .. might form separate succession to bind in suitable classes" (Advertisement vol.1, p.iii). The imprint to No. I in 1780 reads: printed for J. Nichols: sold by T. Payne and Son; H. Payne; C. Dilly; J. Walter; N. Conant; and E. Brooke. The preliminary leaves to each volume were issued in 1790 with No.52; as a result, individual collections may differ in content from volume to volume (e.g. MH-H vols. bound with random issues in each vol.)
