Francis Place: view of Camera Stellata in Greenwich Observatory. 1676This section presents original research on British printed images to 1700. It is currently home to two important pieces of research. The first is a set of studies of early modern English prints resulting from the longstanding research of Dr Malcolm Jones of the University of Sheffield; these were originally presented as bpi1700's 'Print of the Month' feature from August 2006 until June 2009. The second is an important preparatory study of illustrations in British books published between 1604 and 1640, presenting searchable lists of all illustrated books from the period with information about the types of images they contain.

It is hoped to add further research to this section in due course.
