Digital Books

We publish and sell high-quality, digital reprints of classic, vintage books in PDF format. There have been numerous books containing timeless and valuable information published in the past two centuries, covering a wide variety of subjects. However, most of these excellent books have long been out of print, and many of them are now expensive collectibles on the market. At PDFClassicBooks.com we have brought these books back for you to use, by digitally capturing them from library copies and converting them to PDF files which are compatible with all major computer platforms. It is our hope that these PDF digital reprints will provide you with an economical and effective way of learning more about the subjects you are interested in. Visit our site.

This site from Harvard University allows visitors to learn about the lives of women during the Qajar era in Iran from 1796 to 1926 via a "wide array of materials from private family holdings and participating institutions."
The site is most remarkable as it allows visitors to access the materials in both Arabic and English. It offers thousands of personal papers, manuscripts, photographs, publications, everyday objects, works of art and audio materials. Visitors to the site will find several thematic sections here, including clutches of documents from storied families in the region, like those from Nuzhat al-Muluk and Amir Ebrahimi. The Karen collection is particularly notable as it features a large collection of historic marriage contracts, settlements, rental contracts, divorce decrees, and other legal documents. Visit this site.
