British Literary Manuscripts Online

The Baylor Libraries have added additional content to this resource. Below is the new description.

Provides a digital archive featuring literary manuscripts dating from roughly 1120 to 1900. Literary works from Aesop’s Fables through Charles Dickens are included. Coverage is mostly British (and early American/British) works and authors, but there are French, Roman, Italian, and other nationalities represented. View images of literary and religious works, poems, plays, essays, novels, diaries, and journals. Search may include both collections (medieval and Renaissance works, or 1660 – 1900) or either collection alone. Browse by author or search by author, title, or person as subject; limits to century, years, or to any of the eight source libraries from which images were scanned.
