Facsimiles of English language texts, 1470-1700.
Digital facsimile page images of works printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and British North America, and English-language works printed elsewhere, from 1470-1700.
Beginning with the very first book published in English, EEBO draws from four authoritative bibliographical resources both Pollard & Redgraves Short-Title Catalogue (1475-1640) and Wings Short-Title Catalogue (1641-1700) in their revised versions, as well as the Thomason Tracts (1640-1661) and the Early English Books Tract Supplement to present more than 146,000 titles and over 17 million scanned pages of content.
Transcribed texts TCP I and TCP II are now included on EEBO, adding transcriptions to approximately 50% of the texts featured. EEBO also covers texts in more than 30 languages, ranging from Algonquin to Welsh, and incorporates variant editions and multiple copies.
