English Language Literature of the Romantic Period

ca.1,280 women / male / anon. writers:

3,260 titles with approx. 2,000,000 pages on microfiches and ebooks, 

including approx. 900 titles with approx. 650,000 pages from 350 women writers. Many of these women writers were unknown, before Edition Corvey was published;

elektronic Bibliographic Records are available;

J. Raven wrote in 'The Times - Literary Supplement': „Corvey also eclipses the large special collections of early British novels at the universities of Bristol and Aberdeen, and of Pennsylvania and Illinois. It is a more impressive survival than even the astonishing Hammond circulating library, preserved almost completely at the New York Society Library in Manhattan.

Professor Dr. P. Garside wrote: Edition Corvey "....has the capacity to transform our understanding of the fiction of the Romantic era,,,,,,[with] English Fiction, comprising over 2450 titles [originally published] between 1790 and 1834" (page 28 in: Peter Garside, James Raven, Rainer Schoewerling, The English Novel 1770 - 1829: A Bibliographical Survey of Prose Fiction published in the British Isles, Vol. II: 1800 - 1829, Oxord University Press, 2000, Oxford).

Another Testimonial: "... the most concentrated source available worldwide for the Romantic Era" (P. Garside, University of Edinburgh).
