The very first book from our collection has been made available on @googlebooks! It's "Travaux publics dans le Royaume des Pays-Bas" (1878) https://t.co/a0aVGyyHbg. Over the coming months and years, about 100,000 books will follow, and links will be added to our catalogue.

Talking of Plague - I came across a wonderful 2 vol book by Charles Creighton. Vol 1 1891 https://t.co/nG7wSltcuU and Vol 2 1894 https://t.co/uC2m096qUE Both available on Google Books - he charts all sorts of epidemics from 664 to the 1890s. Great for context. #AncestryHour

One of the great pleasures of translating a novel from c. 1900 is working with a Greek-English dictionary from c. 1900 (thank you @googlebooks): for the first time ever, I just got to use the word "virago" (for ἀνδρογυναῖκα). Be well, everyone. #Tinyjoys
