Abstract

This corpus consists of two collections of seventeenth-century English "newsbooks". They address a wide range of news (especially foreign and political news) from the time of their publication (the first 5 and a half months of Oliver Cromwell's reign as Lord Protector). Important contemporary events include Glencairn's Rebellion in Scotland, the negotiation of a peace with Holland, and Queen Christina of Sweden's abdication.
