Abstract: Isolated early-type galaxies are very rare, yet offer important leverage in terms of testing galaxy formation models free of environmental processes. They also act as a valuable control sample. Here I briefly summarise past samples of isolated early-type galaxies and a new well-defined sample. The morphology, stellar populations and scaling relations of these galaxies are compared to their high density counterparts.
