The Perdita Manuscripts
consist of the writings of women from the British Isles during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Full-text facsimile reproductions of these manuscripts bring together little known material from archives across the UK. Some of the women featured include Sarah Cowper, Mary Evelyn and Katherine Philips. The content of the manuscripts includes letters, biography, drama, notebooks, sermon notes, travel writing and much more.
State Papers Online offers original historical materials across the widest range of government concerns, from high level international politics and diplomacy to the charges against a steward for poisoning a dozen or more people. The correspondence, reports, memoranda, and parliamentary drafts from ambassadors, civil servants and provincial administrators present a full picture of Tudor and Stuart Britain and its place in the Early Modern world.
The library has now set up trial access to statista which is a portal for market data and provides current market figures and forecasts for the most important consumer goods within a total of more than 200 markets.
