History Archive Mission

History Archive - Old Books

The History Archive is an institution devoted to preserving the written and pictorial history of man. We aim to provide access to relevant and historical public domain books, maps, art and other works that are of monumental significance to mankind.

You can read more about our mission here.

Our archived collections encompass history, archaeology, science and span every region of the globe. We also have collections on early world exploration, maritime travels and the colonial period as well as many others.

Modern society is changing very rapidly and these works are essential in understanding the development of our world and the various cultures that reside within it.
