- 26,246 pamphlets
- More than one million pages
- Nine collections, including Selections from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Earl Grey Pamphlets Collection, and the Foreign Office Collection
Pamphlets were chosen by RLUK to highlight the political, social, and economic issues of 19th century Britain. This project has drawn together a number of smaller collections associated with individuals or families (Durham, Liverpool, Newcastle, and UCL) as well as different organizations (Manchester). We have also supplemented these with pamphlets drawn from larger collections (Bristol and LSE). The production of electronic facsimiles of the pamphlets was undertaken at BOPCRIS, the specialist digitization unit based in Hartley Library at the University of Southampton. The methods of digitization ensure that all page components were captured and provide users with faithful replications, which include any handwritten personal annotations, corrections, and paper color to provide the effects of time and use on the printed page.
