GallicaThis link opens in a new windowBegun in 1997 as the major digitization project at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Gallica includes full-text and page-images of hundreds of thousands of volumes from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the twentieth century, with an emphasis on nineteenth-century material.
