With the help of the Royal Archives we have tried to track down published editions of materials that will be digitized in the Georgian Papers Programme. It is a small fraction of the total, but it is interesting as a part of the history of archives to examine and compare them. Scholars have generally been quite harsh in their assessment of the early editions, for example.
We consider this a live document. Please let us know if you have other examples to contribute! You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
