Cambridge University Library: Online

From the Telegraph:
A treasure-trove of books that are more than 500 years old are to be catalogued online by the University of Cambridge.

The selection includes a 1455 copy of the Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed in Europe using movable metal type, and the first printed edition of Homer's works, from 1488.

Currently only a small selection of the university's 4,650-strong body of pre-1501 works are included in its Online Catalogue.
