The Drawn Sword: Engravings and Woodcuts from the MacBean Stuart and Jacobite Collection

Created and maintained by the University of Aberdeen Historic Collections, this site offers access to images of 1,278 loose engravings and woodcuts that form part of the MacBean Stuart and Jacobite Collection. In addition to the images, the collection contains approximately 3,500 books and 1,000 pamphlets which "cover every aspect of the Jacobite rebellions, the causes and effects, and the personalities, royal, national and local." Users have two options for retrieving images: a keyword search or simple browse. Since the latter is simply a list of captions for all 1278 images and is not divided into any categories, users will probably find the keyword search more efficient. Each image is accompanied by a caption "detailing the subject and where known the artist, engraver and printer."
