Eighteenth Century Journals: A Portal to Newspapers and Periodicals, c1685-1815

The Eighteenth-Century Journals Portal provides access through a single interface to digitizations of selected English-language scholarly journals and newspapers from the years 1699-1835. At present these include the following five modules: Eighteenth Century Journals, I (76 journals held at Oxford University's Bodleian Library), Eighteenth Century Journals, II (70 journals and newspapers held at the University of Texas at Austin's Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center), Module III focuses largely on material published outside of London, including newspapers from across the British Empire, Ireland, Scotland and provincial England, Module IV contains key material published in Manchester during this time of rapid industrial change and political turmoil, and Module V includes the full run of The Lady’s Magazine: or Entertaining Companion for the Fair Sex, a periodical which ran for sixty-two years from 1770 to 1832, before merging with its rival The Ladies Museum in 1832. The Ladies Museum was launched in 1798 as The Lady’s Monthly Museum, the first two volumes of which are also included in this section. (Updates unknown)
