The Scottish Book Trade Index is now fully searchable!
You can, for instance, find out
- how many booksellers there were in Brechin in the 18th century
- how many printers there were in Scotland before 1700
- who was both a stationers and bookseller
And, of course, you can still search by name and town as before.
We have also updated the database with information from readers received over the past years, so the new version is up to date!
The Scottish Book Trade Index is work in progress, and we welcome new contributions and suggestions for amendments: just email firstname.lastname@example.org!
The new version was developed by the Data Conversion Group in Goettingen, Germany, on behalf of the Consortium of European Research Libraries (CERL). It is hosted on their website.
