What's New in Eighteenth-Century Resources on the Net

These are the most recent eighteenth-century resources I've discovered; they'll remain here for six months. Simple electronic texts are added to the eighteenth-century E-texts page rather than the main eighteenth-century page.

I've removed or corrected several hundred bad links, tracking down those that are track-down-able and deleting those that aren't. (In a few cases, when search engines suggest a page still exists but I'm unable to get to it, I've put an indication, "Down?") I've also reorganized all the E-text links, putting them in a more rational order — that is, more strictly alphabetical, and with collected and selected works at the top of each group. I'm sure it's far from perfect, but it'll have to do.

Once again, it's been an embarrassingly long time since I've updated my links. But this load of more than 400 new ones should go some way toward making up for the delay. This batch is especially strong on electronic texts, including a great many PDF files from the Liberty Fund, a big set of Irish texts, and a number of Polish texts.
