Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Eighteenth Century Journals III is drawn from British Library Newspapers at Colindale and from Cambridge University Library. At the request of scholars and librarians, it focuses on journals published outside of London.

Scholars will be excited by the inclusion of Canadian, Caribbean and Indian journals and can explore the ways in which major world events such as the revolution in Haiti are reported in different areas.

They will also be delighted to see the large number of Irish journals, together with a good number of titles published in Edinburgh, Canterbury and Cambridge.

As always, the material has been carefully checked against Burney, ECCO, Early British Periodicals and other relevant sources to avoid needless duplication. All of the material has been double-keyed and is fully searchable, achieving 99.5% accuracy (much higher than using OCR).

Nature of the Material:

Rare printed journals, periodicals and newspapers of the long eighteenth century not covered in EEBO, ECCO or Burney. All items are full text searchable.


Institutions that have also purchased other sections of the Eighteenth Century Journals Portal can enjoy integrated access via a single user interface, allowing streamlined browsing and searching across material from all collections simultaneously.

Scope of the Collection:

Ever since the publication of Sections I and II scholars and librarians have encouraged us to make available further 18th century journals, with a particular emphasis on those published outside of London.

To commence this process we have selected a group of 25 titles from Canada, the Caribbean and India from British Library Newspapers at Colindale. None of these titles appear in the Burney Collection (Early English Newspapers) or in ECCO or EEBO.

These journals demonstrate how news spread throughout the Empire and show how different stories gain greater prominence in different territories. They are an invaluable source for local news, but they also show how culture, taste and political concerns are circulated.

To this has been added a further 42 journals from Cambridge University Library, which is dominated by a large number of extremely rare titles published in Belfast, Clare, Cork, Derry, Drogheda, Dublin, Limerick, Munster, Sligo and Westmeath. Many are from the 1790s and reflect the revolutionary fervour in Ireland.

Cambridge also holds a number of important journals produced in Edinburgh (such as The Lounger and The Farmer's Magazine), Canterbury (The Kentish Chronicle) and we also include the Cambridge University Magazine for 1795.
