Corvey Digital Collection

DFG Nationallizenz

The database contains 18th and 19th century primary literature in German, English, and French from the Corvey library, and thus presents the holdings of a library of the nobility preserved as a whole.

Nearly all textual genres are represented, whereas the contentual focus lies on the Romantic period between 1790 and 1840 (1870, respectively).

The collection is structured in a modular way with regard to languages and textual genres, and comprises 5,952 works which are provided in digital form for the first time.

It does not overlap but supplements the content of the (also DFG-licensed) databases:
* German Language Women's Literature
* English Language Women's Literature
* Wales related Fiction of the Romantic Period
