Internet Library of Early Journals - A digital library of 18th and 19th Century journals
"ILEJ, the "Internet Library of Early Journals" was a joint project by the Universities of Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Oxford, conducted under the auspices of the eLib (Electronic Libraries) Programme. It aimed to digitise substantial runs of 18th and 19th century journals, and make these images available on the Internet, together with their associated bibliographic data. The project finished in 1999, and no additional material will be added.[...]" 18th-century journals:

  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society (1660-1777: "[...]publication of scientific papers [...]")
19th-century journals:

Follow the links till the list of individual pages is given. Clicking on the page will display the image of that page. [...] Clicking on a title allows a standard search, or a fuzzy search."
