The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly
growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by
advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve
the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own:
digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works
in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these
high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts
are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries,
undergraduate students, and independent scholars.Western literary
study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope,
Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann
Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others.

development of language using dictionaries and grammar discourses.
