The Library now holds permanent access to all four parts of State Papers Online 1509-1714

Our recent purchase of State Papers Online Part IV: The Stuarts: James to Anne, 1603-1714: State Papers Foreign, Ireland and Registers of the Privy Council completes this ground-breaking online resource for understanding 200 years of British and European history.

State Papers Online 1509-1714 is the largest digital manuscript archive of its kind, offering over 3 million pages of 16th and 17th Century State Papers (Domestic, Foreign, Scotland, Ireland) and Registers of the Privy Council, relevant to research in political, governmental, social, economic, and religious history (factsheet).

As such, it offers Early Modern scholars unprecedented access to the behind-the-scenes workings of the Tudor and Stuart governments.

SPO IV covers the 17th Century, one of the most turbulent periods of transition and unrest in British and European history.  It offers a wealth of full-text primary source documents which detail great international themes of this time - the Thirty Years’ War, the Great Turkish War, the end of the Dutch Revolt, the English Civil War, etc.

Wars and treaties, revolutions, marriage alliances, trade and commerce and religion, are all themes covered by this final installment of the four-part archive.
