The Hartlib Papers

Description: The Hartlib Papers, on two CD-ROMs, contain a complete text and image database of the correspondence, papers, treatsies, and diaries of the British polymath Samuel Hartlib (1600-1662) held at Sheffield University Library. The total number of manuscript and printed pages exceeds 25,000 and provides an important reflection of seventeenth century developments in culture, science, religion, medicine, and politics. Each manuscript has been transcribed and incorporated into a TOPIC database linked to a digital image of each page. The collection can be searched by words, phrases, approximate spellings, dates, names and by other fields. There also a range of pre-constructed topics by which the archive can be analysed.

Requirements: PC running MS-DOS 5.0+ with at least 4MB RAM and CD-ROM drive.
