Early Modern Books

Early Modern Books enables integrated searching across both Early English Books Online (EEBO) and Early European Books:

  • Early English Books Online (EEBO) - page images of almost every work printed in the British Isles and North America, as well as works in English printed elsewhere, from 1470-1700. The content draws on authoritative and respected short-title catalogues of the period.
  • Early European Books - full-colour, high-resolution facsimile images of early works printed in Europe before 1701. Access includes Early European Books Collections 1-4, and Early European Books Wellcome Trust Collection.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the Early Modern Books website - you'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary. You can also connect to the individual databases using the links above.
