“Burne this lettre, for it is to dangerons…..” State Papers Online, 1509 -1714
We’re delighted to bring you news that all four Parts of British State Papers Online are now available.
A few years ago (before our blogging days!) we acquired Parts 3 and 4. We trialled Parts 1 and 2 in March, when usage surged at 6,984 full text downloads and 7,099 retrievals, giving a clear indication of how much you need the content. Towards the end of the financial year, we were fortunate to receive some grant money. Investing in Parts 1 and 2 seemed an obvious choice, one which made our historians down in Lenton Grove particularly happy!
Burne this lettre, for it is to dangerons, neyther is ther anything well said in it, for I think upon nothing but upon greefe if you be at Edinboroughe.
(Mary, Queen of Scots to ?? Jan. 24-26 1566-67. SP 53/2 f.65)
