Book Digital Archives

Digital Archives of Books on the Hopewell Valley region, including Historic books from the early 1900’s, and more recent publications. See Acknowledgements for contributors.

The Historic books typically are pre-2020, and therefore are out of copyright in the U.S. They typically have been scanned and digitized through Google Books scans or the Internet Archive scanning project, usually from university collections, and then made freely available.

Many of the scanned PDFs have been further manually processed to clean up extraneous pages, organize the front matter, optimized to perform OCR, and reduced in size as possible. Click the Source link in the table for more information on the available source(s) of the book to find other versions.

See the About page for more details on how this collection is assembled and processed.

The Books table below lists all book files currently available in the archives.
