Cambridge Archive Editions Online is the first-ever digital presentation of the exceptionally well-known and respected series of British archival reprints.
Cambridge Archive Editions (CAE) identifies, selects, arranges, and describes a wide range of the most important documents from the British Government records to create a true survey of an historical period, political movement, or a country’s development.
“America and Great Britain: Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815” is the first Cambridge Archive Editions collection covering North America. It is also the first full color collection. By presenting these documents electronically and in color, much older documents can be reproduced. Color images show the contrast between the copperplate handwriting, often in a brown-based ink, on sepia colored stock.
