Thanks for the share, the free propagation of information plucks my heart-strings.

Friend from the bar was looking for this type of resource we discussed the other day, he was wondering about something as basic as printing a book, how simple it was in the olden days. Many thanks

I want some early psychology books that talk about the mental disorders that are considered great life choices now.. aka homosexuality, transgender, bi polar or what ever they call being liberal is now because there had to be some way of defining liberalism as a mental disorder...

I have a habit of collecting any books of a practical nature from this time period. So much cool stuff to be found in there. Thanks for the awesome shortcut to all such things.

If I could get a version of this with Latin books, I would be sooo grateful. The person running it probably doesn't know Latin, so unlikely, but still. Ah well, maybe someday I'll be able to create just such a resource myself.

Edit: Here's a history of encyclopedias, which mentions many Latin encyclopedias. https://www.britannica.com/topic/encyclopaedia/History-of-encyclopaedias

And here's an archive of the same. http://archive.is/uFYsE

Now I just need to track down scans of each of them that are still extant. That'll be a bit of a start.

Here's a book about one of the encyclopedias targeted toward higher education students. Unfortunately I don't have access to download it and the reader is quite shitty. https://hdl.handle.net/2027/uc1.$b691303
