The John Johnson Collection of Printed Ephemera is a treasure trove for those interested in British history from 1700-1815.  However, material can be difficult to find.

The aim of this guide is to explain what can and what cannot be found online and how best to enjoy the resources of the Collection. It is not intended that this Guide should replace the John Johnson Collection website, where all general and user information can be found.
