Show Navigation

By | In the Library

This outstanding collection of parliamentary papers, newspapers and pamphlets gathered by the Revd Dr Charles Burney (1757-1817) can now be accessed from the Wellcome Library. The Burney Collection, held at the British Library, represents the largest single collection of news media for this period. It covers over 200 years of accounts from England, Ireland, and Scotland and a handful of papers from British colonies in the Americas and Asia.

It is particularly rich in 18th century London newspapers including all the major titles, such as the Daily Courant and the London Gazette.
