More old fashioned wisdom...about everything

Recommended Posts

Before you venture into these websites, notify your next of kin, because you may not come out for days...Between these two sites, there's a nice collection of 1,650,328 books written from 1620 to 1999...most of them are from the early 1800s and mid twentieth century. These old books and journals have been rendered into electronic form, and are free to anyone.

 

The first link is agriculturally related, the second one deals with all things related to home and hearth....

HEARTH is a core electronic collection of books and journals in Home Economics and related disciplines. Titles published between 1850 and 1950 were selected and ranked by teams of scholars for their great historical importance. The first phase of this project focused on books published between 1850 and 1925 and a small number of journals. Future phases of the project will include books published between 1926 and 1950, as well as additional journals. The full text of these materials, as well as bibliographies and essays on the wide array of subjects relating to Home Economics, are all freely accessible on this site. This is the first time a collection of this scale and scope has been made available.

 

Currently online: Pages: 638,398 Books: 1174 (1236 Volumes) Journals: 13 (401 Volumes)
