After the announcement of the British Library on Thursday: “We have released over a million images onto Flickr Commons for anyone to use, remix and re-purpose. These images were taken from the pages of 17th, 18th and 19th century books digitized by Microsoft who then generously gifted the scanned images to us, allowing us to release them back into the Public Domain. The images themselves cover a startling mix of subjects: There are maps, geological diagrams, beautiful illustrations, comical satire, illuminated and decorative letters, colorful illustrations, landscapes, wall-paintings and so much more that even we are not aware of,” I dived into the music category. I will share some as time goes by. Here is the first image. The image taken from page 382 of ‘Voyageurs anciens et modernes, ou Choix des relations de voyages … depuis le cinquième siècle avant Jésus-Christ jusqu’au dix-neuvième siècle, avec biographies, notes et indications iconographiques, par M. E. Charton’
