Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The most substantial historical-topographical description of the Dutch Republic in the eighteenth century is De Tegenwoordige Staat der Vereenigde Nederlanden (The Current State of the United Netherlands, 23 volumes, 1738–1803). Augmenting this was a richly illustrated publication, Het Verheerlijkt Nederland (The Netherlands Exalted, 9 volumes, 1745–1774). Because of their encyclopaedic approach these publications can be regarded as typical products of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. So far, I have collected a rich data set, mainly concerning the relation between the text and the images of the two publications, and specificities about the depicted architecture.
