The Axson Archive is a collection of digitized books drawn from The Stockton Axson Collection of 18th-Century British Drama, held in the Woodson Research Center. Currently, the digital collection consists of 62 items.
About the collection:
Started as a memorial to Stockton Axson, an English professor at Rice, the Axson collection contains British drama first published between 1660 and 1800. With more than 5,000 books, it represents most major and minor literary figures of the period. The plays often have more than one edition, and sometimes more than one copy of an edition is included in the collection.
