About this Item
- A Digital Humanities Pathway to European Enlightenment: from Account Books to Banned Books via Google Books
- 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.
