The enormous profusion of literary texts posted on the World Wide Web will no doubt strike future historians as remarkable and important. But this profusion brings with it an urgent need for many specialized on-line bibliographies. The present one is an analytic bibliography of Latin texts written during the Renaissance and later that are freely available to the general public on the Web (texts posted in access-restricted sites, and Web sites offering electronic texts and digitized photograpic reproductions for sale are not included).

This page was first posted January 1, 1999 and most recently updated on February 11, 2016 . The reader may be interested to know that it currently contains 52,160

records. I urge all those are able to suggest additions or corrections to this bibliograpy as well as those who post new texts on the Web, to inform me by e-mail, so that this bibliography can be kept accurate and up 6o date. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the individuals who have supplied me with corrections and information (I extend especial thanks to Klaus Graf, Tommy Tyberg and J. R. Stockton, who are both responsible for the addition of many hundreds of bibliographical items to this list.

A few further Neo-Latin on-line texts are omitted here because an invalid URL address is provided. Over the passage of time, of course, some of the URL addresses given here may be changed or broken. If you become aware of such difficulties, I would be grateful to have them drawn to my attention.

NOTE: in addition to standard abbreviations, in this bibliography the special abbreviation dpr (“digitized photographic reproduction”) is employed; unless otherwise specified, the file in question is in PDF format. Other abbreviations used are: GDZ = Göttinger Digitalisierungszentrum; HAB = Herzog August Bibliothek, MDZ = Münchener Digitalisierungszentrum.

NOTE: It seems likely that you will need to have created a Google account in order to access Google Books items where the URL address begins with “https://play”.

NOTE: Access to post-1864 items on the Google Books and Univer sity of Michigan University Library sites appear to be at least partially blocked for residents of some or all non-US nations.

NOTE: Two sources of texts listed here, La Biblioteca Virtual de Andalucia, and the Universitat de Valéncia Biblioteca Digital, appear to be in the process of rebuilding their sites, and a number of texts previously posted by them are not currently available. These have therefore been at least temporarily withdrawn from this bibliography, but I would hope that they will eventually be posted once more.
