McGill Library’s Chapbook Collection

The McGill Library's Chapbook Collection contains over nine hundred British and American chapbooks published in the 18th and 19th centuries. This digital collection was created by identifying and digitizing volumes from the The Sheila R. Bourke Collection of Children's Literature, the Children's Books Collection and the main McGill Library Rare Books and Special Collection. As new titles are acquired and added to the collection they will be digitized and added to our digital collection http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/chapbooks
