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.Medical theory and
practice of the 1700s developed rapidly, as is evidenced by the
extensive collection, which includes descriptions of diseases,
their conditions, and treatments. Books on science and technology,
agriculture, military technology, natural philosophy, even
cookbooks, are all contained here.++++The below data was compiled
