Rare Book Room showcases great books of the world

The website Rare Book Room offers a wide variety of books digitized by a company called Octavo (it is unclear whether they are still in business). Octavo digitally photographed a selection of books–about 400–from some of the world’s greatest libraries at medium/high resolution (in some cases at over 200 megabytes per page). Users can browse by category, author, and library or perform simple searches.
