Search for a particular Italian word -- or go search at the Archimedes project transcription. Note also that there is an Italian-Italian dictionary from 1612 online.

You can download the entire facsimile as one huge .PDF file, 66 megabytes. I also have the smaller 1598 edition online.

If you'd like a copy of the raw data for this book, or the various search scripts (implemented as Perl CGI scripts), please email me.

A (transcribed) copy of Florio's 1598 dictionary is in the The Early Modern English Dictionaries Database, but the EMEDD has a copyright issue which does not exist here.
