The Ledgers of William Strahan

This project will make available in meaningful and orderly form information contained in the thirteen manuscripts ledgers of a major 18th century English printer, William Strahan. The ledgers are now deposited in the British Museum and in the American Philosophical Society Library. The University of Toronto Press will publish the study in three to five volumes. The significance of the ledgers is that they comprise one of the richest sources of primary information about the 18th century in the history of printing, and in literature, history, economics, jurisprudence, theology and religious controversy, international trade and political controversy.
