We have released over a million
images<http://www.flickr.com/photos/britishlibrary>onto Flickr Commons
for anyone to use, remix and repurpose. These images
> were taken from the pages of 17th, 18th and 19th century books digitised
> by 
> Microsoft<http://pressandpolicy.bl.uk/Press-Releases/The-British-Library-19th-Century-Book-Digitisation-Project-343.aspx>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,
> colourful illustrations, landscapes, wall-paintings and so much more that
> even we are not aware of.
