    Project Gutenberg

    Oh, man. As if I needed something else to suck up huge loads of my free time. Project Gutenberg has over 15,000 FREE e-books.

    They are mostly public domain, but that means many period works have been translated into this shiny new electronic medium. You can read them now or download them for later.

    Check out "The Art of Fencing -
    The Use of the Small Sword" by Monsieur L'Abbat! It has pictures!

    Way past period for us SCA'ers, (but looks like it still has some great advice) is The Code of Honor, Or, Rules for the Government of Principals and Seconds in Duelling By John Lyde Wilson.

    Maybe you'd prefer the Gustave Dore illustrated version of "The Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri?

    Complete works of William Shakespeare? Yeah, they got that too.

    Or, just search for whatever you want. HINT: Try the LoCC field.

    Happy reading!!
