About this Item

Title
A Digital Humanities Pathway to European Enlightenment: from Account Books to Banned Books via Google Books
Summary
The French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe project uses database technology to map the trade of the Societe Typographique de Neuchatel (STN), a celebrated European publishing house that operated between 1769 and 1794. The STN's archives can be considered a representative source for studying the history of the book trade and dissemination of ideas in late Enlightenment Europe. The use of database technology with a data source as rich as the STN archives will significantly enhance the research use of the notable collection of original material held at the Library of Congress.
Event Date
