Description

The present digital collection, that helps chart the development of the concept of 'news' and 'newspapers' and the "free press," totals almost 1 million pages and contains approximately 1,270 titles. This is the largest single collection of 17th and 18th century news content available from the British Library. Many of the Burney newspapers are well known, but many pamphlets and broadsides also included have remained largely hidden. Newly digitized, all Burney treasures are now fully text-searchable.
