Statistical Table

The statistical information in this table is generated automatically from the database designed by CollectiveAccess. At the completion of the survey, we expect to see large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations in ways that were not possible previously. We hope this will lead to research in various areas of digital humanities, especially in the Spanish 18th-century printing industry.

NUMBER OF SUELTAS

Running Tally
6428

This Table is the aggregate of the total number of works in the database that are in the public view. The number of sueltas held in a particular collection appears as soon as you click on an Institution's page. The number of works with a specific collection may diminish if we discover that the work is a post-1833 imprint.

TITLES

Running Tally
2230

Titles can be tracked in TITLES MODERNIZED under the RESOURCES menu. These are not firm numbers because titles are not unique. The same title had been used by two or more authors, for example, both Pérez de Montalbán and Calderón wrote plays entitled Los Hijos de la fortuna. The titles La cruz en la sepulture and La devoción de la cruz refer to the same play by Calderón. Another example is the simple alteration of Calderón’s Nunca lo peor es cierto for a less categorical No siempre lo peor es cierto. Some of these plays rely on comparison of first and last lines of the text to ascertain proper identification. During the time period sueltas were printed, titles were also modified, truncated, misprinted, corrupted, or simply changed in any number of ways.
