    This is a bit of a blatant abuse of your blog, but would any readers with a ready copy of these books mind looking up some page numbers for me?

    Antony Griffiths ‘The Print in Stuart Britain’ On which page does he mention a series of prints called the Elements?

    Richard Sharp ‘The engraved record of the Jacobite movement.’ In one chapter he explores the use of Jacobite portrait prints as propaganda. What are the page numbers for the chapter?

    Tessa Watt ‘Cheap print and popular piety.’ or Sheila O’Connell ‘The Popular Print.’ On what page does either author mention the low survival rate of 16th and 17th century woodcuts?

    I’m just asking on the off chance that one of your readers has these very popular books in a pile on their desk as they read this.

    Are any of them in Google Print or Amazon’s text search?

  3. Sharon says:

    Google Print (or Google Book Search as it is now) has Watt’s book. First mention is at p.42, but there are a couple more after that. You’ll need to register if you haven’t already, in order to view the pages (but it’s well worth doing!).

    No luck with any of the others though.

    Ahh thanks. :) That’s one problem out the way. I’ve decided to pester my old uni librarian for the other references. I thought I was so careful to check all the page numbers as well!!

    Hooray! Uni librarian came up with answers for me.

    Good to hear it. Librarians are cool, cool people. (And archivists too.) :)
