The Archive of Early American Images

Drawn from the holdings of the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University, the Archive of Early American Images is designed "to assist historians in their quest for contemporary images to illustrate their research findings and to facilitate the study of historical images in their own right and in proper context." This evolving image database (planned to eventually contain some 6,000 images) contains numerous images that have been culled from relatively obscure books printed in Europe that have visual documentation related to the Americas in the period before 1825. First-time visitors can browse the materials here by time, geographical area, or subjects, which include such headings as flora and fauna, industry, maps, and portraits. With such a wide array of images available, many visitors will be tempted to come back to this site numerous times, as they will definitely find materials that may help them in the classroom setting.
