The official blurb:
UCL SSEES Library is very pleased to announce that almost all the library’s content digitised under the EU-funded project EuropeanaTravel is now available for users in the UCL Digital Collections service. Just follow the link at www.ssees.ucl.ac.uk/library to find nearly 400 digitised books, 200 digitised maps and numerous images from the archives and special collections.
There are tools available on the service to zoom in to the maps so they can be viewed in great detail, and there are three different methods for viewing the books including a page turner. Some of the images are also available in a new virtual exhibtion hosted by the European Library under the title Travelling Through History. This can be found at www.theeuropeanlibrary.org. We hope you will experiment with the service and let us have any comments, and that the images will be useful for both teaching and research.
And time wasting, we might add.
Our pick so far – besides the maps, many of which are works of art – is this 1820 book called An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia by William Wilkinson. Chapter V deals with Bucharest, and opens:
BUKOREST, the present capital of Wallachia, is an extensive dirty town, situated on a low and marshy ground, and containing eighty thousand inhabitants, three hundred and sixty-six churches, twenty monasteries, and thirty large hanns or caravanserays.
Most of the books and documents can be downloaded as PDFs to be printed off and read in the old fashioned way. We have as a result had to stock up on paper.
We could, as they say, be some time.
