Part 1: Early Womens Journals, c.1700-1832, from the Bodleian Library, Oxford
Our microfilm publications are prepared and produced in accordance with recommended and established guide-lines for the production of microfilm of superior quality. These conform to the recommendations of the standard guides to good microfilming and micropublishing practice.
The original material reproduced in this project and made available for the first time by Adam Matthew Publications was filmed following our instructions by the Reprographic section of the Bodleian Library. Additional material was filmed by Micromedia in Bicester.
Attention should be drawn to the nature of some of the original material. The paper quality of most of these Eighteenth Century Journals is good but some of the pages have been torn through use or have turned brittle with age. Where journals have been bound into large volumes there are inevitable problems caused by curvature and occasionally items have been cropped. Other problems with the journals include show-through, staining and fading. Every effort has been made to minimise these difficulties. Nevertheless these original characteristics present difficulties of image and contrast which stringent tests and variations of density cannot entirely overcome.
We have exerted the most responsible care and attention in preparing this project for micropublication and this microfilm publication aims to meet the standards established by the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
