European Literature 1790-1840 – trial of the Corvey Collection

We have set up a trial to the Corvey Collection. The Corvey Collection constitutes one of the most important collections of British Romantic-era writing in existence anywhere. It contains a considerable number of exceedingly rare publications—and even numerous previously unknown works—by British writers (and women writers in particular, whose works comprise over 1,000 of the titles) who were active during the Romantic period.

In addition to this remarkable trove of English-language literary texts, Gale’s Corvey Collection of European Literature also includes 3,658 works in French (including more than 500 by women) and 2,653 works in German, all of them dating primarily from the period 1790–1840.

This resource is on trial from here until 8th June 2012 accessible from on campus only. Try it out and let us know what you think
