The Missouri Botanical Garden Library has many lovely examples of 18th and 19th century botanical literature from all around the world. While they began digitizing some of these works in 1995, they recently decided to expand their collection to include non-illustrated works of significant importance to taxonomic botany. Drawing on support from the W.M. Keck Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, their database has been expanded to include over 280 books and journals with a total page count that exceeds 790,000 pages. On their homepage, visitors can click on an interactive list of subjects in order to locate items of interest, or they can also search the database by title, an author list, or year of publication. Interested parties may wish to also sign up for their RSS feed or just read through their latest news updates.
