Making a Map for Good, Ole “Characteristicks”.

For this COPLAC assignment, I’m returning to a dear friend “Characteristicks of Men, Manners, Opinions, Times” by Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury. The edition of this book that we have access to at the UVA Wise Library is supposedly a Baskerville book printed in Birmingham, England. I was curious as to where else the book had been printed, and a quick trip to the English Short Titles Catalog did not disappoint. I have confirmations that it was printed in London, Glasgow, and Dublin. I wasn’t surprised at all to see that the book had also been printed in Dublin, because Irish reproduction of books is something that has been mentioned many times during lecture.
