New: Early European Books Online

EEB

Early European Books Online (EEB) is a collection of digitized European books printed in the early modern period (1450s-1700). With strong representation in Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, and Latin among many other languages, this collection will be of interest to scholars in literature, philosophy, history, and religion. Works include those by Tycho Brahe, Michelangelo Buonarrotie the Younger (nephew of the painter Michelangelo), Nostradamus, Blaise Pascal, Rene Descartes, John Calvin, and many more.

The collection is drawn from the Danish Royal Library, the National Central Library in Florence, the National Library of France, the National Library of the Netherlands, the Wellcome Library in London, and others. It complements Berkeley’s access to Early English Books Online.

Search by country of publication, language, page features (illustration, musical notation), and source library. You may include historical and linguistic variants in your search. Books can be browsed in an online Flash-based viewer or downloaded as JPEGs or PDFs. Scans are of the entire physical object and pages, including marginalia and binding. Early European Books is moving to a new platform this year, so look forward to improved speed and usability.

Please contact a reference librarian or subject librarian if you have any questions.
