Early English Books Online (EEBO)

Early English Books Online (EEBO) contains over 22 million digital page images of virtually every work printed in the English language as well as works printed in Great Britain and its dependencies from 1473-1700 in any language. The collection draws from the following bibliographic records:

  • The Short-Title Catalogue I (Pollard & Redgrave, 1475–1640)
  • The Short-Title Catalogue II (Wing, 1641–1700)
  • The Thomason Tracts, a compendium of broadsides on the English Civil War, 1640 and 1661
  • The Early English Books Tract Supplements

Included in EEBO are works by Shakespeare, Malory, Spenser, Bacon, More, Erasmus, Boyle, Newton, and Galileo; musical exercises by Henry Purcell; novels by Aphra Behn; and prayer books, pamphlets, proclamations, almanacs, calendars, and other primary resources. EEBO is potentially very useful for research in a variety of academic disciplines including Literature, History, Politics, Philosophy, Linguistics, Music, Fine Arts, Education, Mathematics, and the Sciences.
