In 1753 the British Museum Library , the library of the British Museum in London, took over the book collection that had been put together by Hans Sloane . The date is considered to be the founding date of the British Library , one of the largest research libraries in the world with over 250 million volumes.

Friedrich Melchior Grimm takes over the management of the Nouvelles littéraires , which was published from 1747 to 1753 by Guillaume Thomas François Raynal , and changes the name to Correspondance littéraire, philosophique et critique . Grimm published the Correspondance littéraire until 1775 and then handed the management over to his long-time secretary Jakob Heinrich Meister .
