Hartlib Papers

Samuel Hartlib (c.1600 - 1662), a great seventeenth-century 'intelligencer' and man of science, set out to record all human knowledge and make it universally available for the education of all mankind. His correspondence, which runs to over 25,000 folios of original materials, came to the University of Sheffield Library in the 1960s. This online edition provides free access to all the content available on the original CD-ROM versions.

(See the Special Collections: Hartlib Papers link for details of the original materials.)
