Jordan Special Collections: 18th Century British Political Pamphlets Collection

Permanent URI for this collection

The range of coverage of this comprehensive pamphlet collection extends from 1642, through the Civil War period, the Standing Army Controversy, the struggles for reform in the 1780s and 1790s and the Reform Bill of 1832. Before the development of general, non-partisan newspapers, the pamphlet was the most important medium for public discussion of a wide range of issues.

This outstanding research collection now numbers over 2,500 items and includes some very scarce material.

The digitization of this collection was sponsored by the Ontario Council of University Libraries and its member libraries
