Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The largest single collection of English news media from these two centuries, 17th and 18th Century Burney Collection provides rare and unique content for scholarly research. Documenting 200 years of cultural, political, social and historical events, 17th and 18th Century Burney Collection is the largest single collection of English news media, including newspapers, newsbooks, proclamations and pamphlets, providing insight into England's development as a world power, as well as the emergence of the modern newspaper.

Gathered by the Reverend Charles Burney and now a well-known collection at the British Library, the original Burney volumes are in fragile condition and are restricted from reading-room use except as microfilm. Through a partnership with the British Library, Gale has digitally scanned each page of this collection bringing these rare documents to scholars around the world in an easy-to-use, full-text searchable digital format. 17th and 18th Century Burney Collection is cross-searchable with Gale's other newspaper and periodical collections on Gale NewsVault.


  • Includes rare titles like An Account of the Publick Transactions in Christendom, Bath Chronicle, Bell's Weekly Messenger, Calcutta Chronicle and General Advertiser, London Penny Gazette, Mercurius Politicus Comprising the Summ of All Intelligence, Moderate Intelligencer, Original Weekly Journal, and Whitehall Evening Post.
  • Essential to the study of British history and culture at crucial periods in the nation's development as a world power, this collection gives new freshness and immediacy to historical events and reflects the cultural trends, political currents and social problems of the day.
  • 17th & 18th Century Burney Collection is an excellent complement to Eighteenth Century Collections Online, Making of the Modern World, and 19th Century British Library Newspapers.
