A swag of pre-1700 prints published in Britain from a very significant collaborative database (V&A; Brit. Museum; Kings College). The dbase is a "work in progress" and is a bit buggy. There will be 10,000 prints when it is finished but there are around 1000+ prints available now. The post features a selection across the available genres from satire, ornament, maps, royal and noble portraiture as well as allegorical and decorative plates.
