Search this Resource

Description: Early English Books Online [EEBO] includes the total surviving published record of the English-speaking world for 227 years in digital format. It reproduces images of over 125,000 books, pamphlets and broadsides published in England and her colonies in any language between 1475 and 1700, and in English worldwide for this period. When complete, EEBO will contain all the works--more than twenty-two million pages--represented in the microfilm series, Early English Books I & II, which includes the titles listed in Pollard & Redgrave's Short-Title Catalogue of printed materials published in the English language from 1475 to 1640; Wing's Short-Title Catalogue of works dating from 1641 to 1700; and the Thomason Tracts, a compendium of broadsides on the English Civil War printed between 1640 and 1661. It also will include 25,000 searchable texts. These accurately keyboarded and SGML/XML-tagged editions, created in a partnership called the Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership, will link to the corresponding ProQuest image files. In combination, the text and image editions of these works provide a powerful research and instructional tool of unquestioned enduring value.
