  • 19th Century UK Periodicals Series 1: New Readerships, 10/30/2014 - 11/29/2014  Icon
    This collection of nineteenth-century periodical literature covers the period 1800 to 1900. When complete it will make available full runs of nearly 600 titles, some of which exist only in a single copy, such is the fragile state of much nineteenth-century printed material. The availability, on the scholar’s desktop, of six million pages of nineteenth-century journalism, fully searchable, sourced from the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and other specialist libraries, offers a collection of unparalleled range and diversity. The collection should be of interest to historians and students of nineteenth-century literature and culture, empire, feminism, the history of the book, the creative and performing arts, sport and leisure, science and medicine, the professions, in short, of all aspects of nineteenth-century life that the press encompassed.

  • OLMS ONLINE Archive: FRANKFURT AND LEIPZIG BOOK-FAIR CATALOGUES, October 24, 2014 - November 24, 2014  Icon
    Book-trade catalogues, generally referred to as book fair catalogues, offer a unique overview of German – and in many respects European – book production over a period of nearly 300 years (1594-1860). This form of information, originally intended for the contemporary book trade, today forms an important and comprehensive
    historical bibliography of the period.
    Developed in the 16th century, the book fair catalogues for the Spring or Easter and Autumn or Michaelmas Fairs provided the widest possible overview of the books on offer during this period. Only when other sources of information began to take their place did they cease publication in 1860.

    The digitisation is based on the microfilming of the book fair catalogues from 1594 onwards. To bring the various and astonishingly scattered holdings of different libraries together and create and almost complete run was a major editorial achievement. There were only a few years during the Thirty Years’ War when no cata
  • OLMS ONLINE Archive: REPRINTS, October 24, 2014 - November 24, 2014  Icon
    Olms Online presents works reprinted by the Georg Olms Verlag with additional information. These are reprints with new introductions, afterwords, notes or indexes added by the editors. This “added value” distinguishes the chosen titles from other digital collections on the World Wide Web. Bibliographical data are also searchable through hidden metadata. Currently some 400 volumes, with a focus on German language and literature and on philosophy, can be viewed here. You will find on these pages, for example, the German and Latin works from the Complete Works of Christian Wolff, the Works of the Brothers Grimm and Bernhard Suphan’s Herder edition with an introduction to the online edition by Professor Gerhard Sauder. Titles from Olms' collections on Christian Thomasius and Hermann Cohen, as well as early works of women’s literature, dictionaries of the 15th to 19th centuries and collections of proverbs offer a digital insight
    into the Olms Verlag’s humanities programme.
