Eighteenth Century Capitalization

I've done searches for "eighteenth century capitalization", "&c. &c. spelling" or "grammar", and I've found a bit on usual spellings (e-and-i reversals, single Ls in adverbs, phonetic past participle endings) but what I really need to know is what the rules were for capitalization. Are all nouns capitalized, just abstract nouns, nouns referring to people ...? I figure there must be someone here who has an interest in this sort of thing and could point me to the rule, or lack of.
