The Union Catalog of Pre-1600 Books Online

This list of pre-1600-relevant books is taken from a number of online collections, including: This list contains 30,504 books selected from the total of 342,963 books in these collections. This list is updated monthly.

Please check out our hints for using this resource, and some details about how this list was constructed. If you spot a book which doesn't belong here, or know of a book that's missing, please email me at You can view all the non-selected books from the individual subject pages.

The subject groups are approximate; you will find that related books might be filed under different subjects, or might have no subject at all. So once you've found an interesting book by browing a subject category, you might want to search for the author or book title in the search box to find other editions or volumes in a series.

Many of these books are stored in "djvu" format, so you will need to download a djvu client to read them.

Other collections of books can be found on the SCA Books page.
