Historical Book Images

Historical Book Images is a Tumblr site that selectively presents illustrations from books scanned by the Internet Archive for its eBooks and Texts collection. This segment of the Internet Archive, online since 2004, has over 10,000,000 fully accessible books and texts. Historical Book Images is surfacing interesting items from this large corpus and making them available for more users to comment, reblog, and use for other purposes (such as iPhone wallpaper). Want to see the whole book and more images? Titles and page numbers are provided to make for easy searching in the eBooks and Texts collection back at the Internet Archive, where you can see full text as well as images, or click on any image to go to the Internet Archive's Flickr stream. Historical Book Images is curated by Mark Sample, a professor of Digital Studies at Davidson College in North Carolina.
