Digital facsimile page images of books, pamphlets, newspapers, and manuscripts of works printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and British North America as well as works in English printed elsewhere. From the first book published in English through the age of Spenser and Shakespeare, this collection contains the texts of about 100,000 of over 125,000 titles listed in Pollard and Redgrave's Short-Title Catalogue (1475-1640) and Wing's Short-Title Catalogue (1641-1700) and their revised editions, as well as the Thomason Tracts (1640-1661) collection and the Early English Books Tract Supplement. Coverage includes English literature, history, philosophy, linguistics, theology, music, fine arts, education, mathematics, and science.
Originally EEBO searched just the descriptive records ("full record") and displayed the images of each work. Now, we are pleased to make available the Early English Books Online-Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP) Phase 1 content (25,000 keyed transcriptions), which provides searchable full-text access to many of the materials in EEBO. See below for details.
