Stanford University Librarian Michael A. Keller brought this digital collection to Stanford, and to the world, via Paris. Previously, this resource existed as, originally developed by Michel Demont and Sandra Hindman in 2001. These digitized reference works were migrated to Stanford Libraries and processed by the Digital Production Group to be presented on this advanced online platform for search and access. The presentation platform for reading and searching across and within the texts is the prime feature of this site. In addition this site provides information for students and scholars interested in books history. There are details about publishers, authors, personal libraries and rare collections.

Previously available only to subscribers, Stanford Libraries has made this bibliographic database available to everyone. We will continue to expand the collection and welcome your recommendations for additional titles. Write to
