17th-19th Century British Pamphlets

As the opening to the 17th-19th Century British Religious, Political, and Legal Tracts site states: “The body of pamphlet literature of the 17th and 18th centuries is enormous. These pamphlets deal with every event and circumstance of the day, be it social, economic, legal, medical, political, or religious.” More than 20,000 pamphlets have been digitized and offer another avenue of research into modern British history. Type in “Lord Protector” in the author box and find Oliver Cromwell’s A declaration of the Lord Generall and his Councel of officers; shewing the grounds and reasons for the dissolution of the late Parliament from 1653; find out what was put out at the behest of Parliament; and see how many pamphlets deal with treason.
