Broad Theme: Authors

Although some sections of the Collection are devoted to Authors many of these (with the exception of Dickens and Shakespeare) are small sections.

There are many other references to authors, notably in Prospectuses of books and journals, both of which have been catalogued and digitised for the JISC-funded ProQuest project The John Johnson Collection: an archive of printed ephemera.

Playwrights and authors whose works have been dramatised can also be found in the Entertainment section, again with digital images on the ProQuest site.

Records (only) for items on the ProQuest site are available through our online catalogue.
