Johnsoniana on the Internet Archive

Although Google’s book digitization program is the one that gets most of the attention (and Harvard’s cooperation) an equally worthy project is also underway at the Internet Archive. They’ve already scanned in an impressive selection of Samuel Johnson books and related works, as well as books by James Boswell and Hester Thrale Piozzi. I especially like the fact that the scans can be either viewed in your browser through their “flip book” interface, or downloaded as a high-resolution, searchable PDFs (look for the entries that have a rotating series of thumbnail images next to them).
