A project to publish 14 million free and freely available historical images



A project has begun to extract 14 million images from 2 million public domain e-books owned by the

Internet Archive , which records and stores all information on the Internet, and publish them for free. The target books have been published in the last 500 years, and there are various genres from medical materials to caricatures. All can be downloaded for free and can be used for commercial purposes.
