Large Digital Libraries of Pre-1800 Printed Books in Western Languages

Large means: more than 100 works printed before 1800 in English, Latin, French, German, etc. (no Slavic languages) which are whooly digitized as facsimiles. I have estimated the numbers if they are not provided by the website.

For smaller digital libraries see
http://wiki.netbib.de/coma/DigiMisc and subpages
http://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Digitale_Sammlungen (digital libraries with at least 1 PD German book)
