Digital Repositories

Early European books contains printed European book collections from the origins of printing through the close of the seventeenth century. The collection builds upon and complements Early English Books Online (EEBO) and focuses on non-Anglophone materials; however, books in English or printed in the English-speaking world that are already represented in EEBO are not omitted from Early European Books where they form an integral element of the predominantly non-Anglophone collections that have been made available for digital capture. Full-color, high-resolution (400 ppi) facsimile images scanned directly from the original printed sources.

The Wellcome Library provides access to many of their resources in digitized format, including early modern literary texts.
