Primeros Libros de las Américas is a free database of scanned images of early printed books produced in the Americas from 1455 to 1600. This project is an international collaboration of more than 25 institutional partners from Mexico, Spain, Peru, and the U.S. The collection continues to grow as partner institutions join the project. The database includes high-resolution images and rich metadata descriptions that allow efficient searching. The goal of the project is to build a free digital collection of imprints from the early Americas that will include at least one copy of the 136 titles that have survived to the present. The collection offers unique primary sources for a variety of academic fields studying Colonial Spanish America.
