A Library of Antiquarian Technology

When I get a little money, I buy books; and, if any is left, I buy food and clothes.

This is a small online library, with a focus on antiquarian technology.

Every work in this library may be copied. Everything here is either in the public domain (and remains so in transcription here) or licensed under a Creative Commons "Attribution-ShareAlike" license. I encourage you to copy these works. In the end, all libraries burn, and it is only by constant copying through the centuries that our intellectual civilization is preserved.
