Where Was This Book Published?

For this week’s assignment, we had to use The English Short Title Catalogue to track down the publication locations of a particular book our university owns that was published in the 18th century. I chose The tender husband; or, The accomplished fools. : A comedy by Sir Richard Steele. With a title like “Sir,” I was pretty confident that at least one of the locations this work was published would be in England. Unsurprisingly, it was most often published in London, England! The second most published place was in Dublin, Ireland and, finally, one lonely copy was published in Glasgow.
