A new online resource for old Spanish books
Well, it's not especially new, but I saw it mentioned in the news, because new sources are available.
The Virtual Library of Bibliographic Heritage includes digital facsimiles of the collections that make up Spanish bibliographic heritage. It includes manuscripts, incunabula and old printed books.
Those interested in old books can enjoy browsing this library. Unfortunately, as usual around here, the English looks sketchy.

Things like this, which makes available to the entire world, what only a few years ago were the preserve of a select few scholars, are just wonderful, I think. Thanks for sharing this with us.
By the way, for anyone else who, like me, didn't know what "incunabula" means:
