London Book Trades Database
The London Book Trades database, developed by Michael L. Turner, currently contains entries for just over 30,000 individuals active in the London book trades from the introduction of printing to around 1830. Emphasis is placed on recording specific events in each individual's life, and on recording the inter-relationships, both familial and professional, within the trade.
A full copy of the database itself (in Microsoft Access format) is also available for download from the School of Advanced Study E-Repository. (NB. File is very large.) A finding index of all the individuals listed in the database is available too (as a text file).
