straw into gold

So many thanks to the tiny gnome librarians who sit up all night spinning straw into gold scanning the old copies of so many amazing books. While it’s not the same as holding the book and reading it, the typography & illustrations of these older versions are amazing & worth peeking at.


The Blue Bird: A Fairy Play in Six Acts by Maurice Maeterlinck

The Betrothal by Maurice Maeterlinck

Nightmare Tales by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

The Theosophical Glossary by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

& the text version of the Glossary – better for gathering snippets.

Does anyone else have any favorites online?
