Not until 2015 anyway! I would have thought that with the web as it is today, most of the information to be found in library books, even those which date as far back as the 1600's, is available providing the 'search for' question is well formatted. If you just want a good read I would still prefer to get the book.

This collection is free and open for everyone to use.

Our goal in digitizing these texts and putting them online is to provide easy access to a rich and fascinating core collection of archival texts.

By providing near-unrestricted access to these texts, we hope to encourage widespread use of texts in new contexts by people who might not have used them before.
