British Library To Offer 19th Century First Editions For Free Download On Amazon Kindle
Owners of the Amazon Kindle e-book device will be able to view the books, including their original typeface and illustrations, of famous works by Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, as well as thousands of more obscure authors.
As well as classic titles by famous 19th Century authors, many of the downmarket books known as “penny dreadfuls” will also be made available to the public, including Black Bess by Edward Viles and The Dark Woman by J M Rymer.
Around 40 per cent of the British Library’s 19th-century printed books are unavailable in other public libraries and bookshops.
