Gustave Doré Digital Collection

Gustave Doré (1832-1883) was a French artist from the 19th-century. I have been working on digitizing some of his illustrations from our Rare & Special Books Collection at the University at Buffalo Libraries. We have about 55 pre-1923 books that feature Gustave Doré’s illustrations.

So far I have done two books, Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven (1884) and Tom Hood’s Fairy Realm (1865). While they are currently only a digital collection, I plan on having them available for purchase in our library store soon. I also plan on adding Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1876), and Milton’s Paradise Lost (1885), among others.
