Scope of the Collection:

Material from Chetham's Library, Manchester, is the core collection for Eighteenth Century Journals IV. Established in 1653, Chetham's is the oldest public reference library in the UK, and from its excellent 18th century holdings we focus on rare magazines, literary periodicals and political journals. Continuing our commitment to publishing periodicals from outside London, we have also selected a strong collection of Manchester newspapers for the period. The Chetham's collection is supplemented by a selection of periodicals from the Brotherton Library, University of Leeds.

The wide-ranging titles in this collection offer an invaluable source of information for scholars and students concerned with any area of eighteenth century studies, including: the industrial revolution; radicalism; politics and government; literature (British and European); philosophy and religion. We have selected magazines and periodicals that express the diverse range of intellectual concerns that was characteristic of the Enlightenment reader.

The Manchester newspapers trace the transformation of the town into the world's first industrialised city, covering the massive growth of the textile industry in the region; the population explosion and urbanisation of the area; and the radical politics, riots and unrest that grew to be synonymous with the city. They will be a key source for historians of British politics or the industrial revolution.
