Overview

Spanning the tumultuous years of the English Civil War, the Interregnum, and the Restoration, this collection continues the mission of STC I to preserve valuable research materials on microfilm. With both STC I and STC II, libraries will have available for their scholars an unparalleled center, essential for research libraries supporting strong graduate studies programs.

While the notable features and purposes of this collection are the same as those of STC I, STC II contains larger bodies of titles in certain subject areas such as the arts, the sciences, popular culture, and women's studies. And, the historical perspective of an era that saw the rise of a mercantile class, the first English settlements in North America, and the development of secular philosophy and empirical science provides research possibilities into trends in British ethos and philosophy.

Students of the arts can access critical discourses on art and literature, such as:

 

  • Edward Filmers Defense of Dramatick Poetry (1698)
  • Pierre Monier's History of Painting (1699)
  • Henry Purcell's A Choice Collection of Lessons for the Harpsichord (1696)

For physical scientists, the collection includes books by Boyle, Newton, and Galileo, as well as popular scientific tracts such as Nicholas Culpeper's The English Physician (1652). And students of women's studies find useful the editions of works by Aphra Behn, Anne Killigrew, and Margaret Cavendish.

The scope and caliber of these two collections are without rival, providing as they do the materials for scholars in English literature, history, religion, arts, music, physical science, and women's studies the creative latitude required for important research opportunities.

 

Individual reels may be purchased from this collection.

  • Content Type: Reel guides and a cross-index listing entry numbers from the Wing bibliography is free with the collection. Each reel begins with a contents page. MARC records are also available, many exclusively through ProQuest Information and Learning.
