Rarebooks.info provides an incomparable collection of 144 electronic bibliographies online. Subjects cover early printing, world literature, natural history, science, medicine, theology, cultural and area studies, Judaica, music, theology, art and architecture, among others. Key bibliographies include standard reference works by Brunet (Manuel), Sabin (Americana), Fairfax Murray (French and German Books), along with many more hard-to-find works.
These are not e-texts; they are scanned facsimiles of actual books. Standard reference works, many of them long out of print, as well as other significant and hard-to-find works are included. The database provides a unique and unparalleled tool for researchers—students, librarians, professors, teachers, book professionals, and collectors.
