I am conducting researching on 19th century Ireland. This involves reading lots of travel books, political pamphlets, Blue Books etc. I am wondering if there is a database for finding the circulation records for some of these texts (for example, how many editions a particular travel book went through, and how many copies it sold). In some of the secondary literature I have noticed scholars cite this kind of information, but I have no idea how they calculate it. I should say I am aware of Oz Frankel's "Blue Books and the Victorian Reader." Victorian Studies 46.2 (2004). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best David Nally -- David P.
