Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO)

Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) Parts 1 and 2 include a variety of full-text materials – from books and directories, Bibles, sheet music and sermons to advertisements – and works by many well-known and lesser-known authors, all providing a diverse collection of material for the researcher of the eighteenth century.

Subject coverage includes literature, history, religion, law, the fine arts and science.

Included are works from women writers of the eighteenth century, collections on the French Revolution, and numerous editions of the works of Shakespeare. Multiple editions of each individual work are offered to enable scholars to make textual comparisons of the works. There are digital images of every page of nearly 200,000 titles published during the eighteenth Century. This is available through Historical Texts.
