Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts

Try this newer version of the Alex Catalogue. It doesn't have nearly the amount of content of the original Alex, but that will change over time as the underlying infrastructure gets developed. Please don't hesitate to tell me what you think.

The Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts is a full-text indexed collection of classic American and English literature as well as Western philosophy in the public domain and written or translated into English.

Here's some tips for using the Catalogue:

  1. Browse the collection by author names or titles.
  2. Search the contents of books by entering queries. Fun examples are love, art, science, art and science, or "secret inclination".
  3. Read found texts online in plain-text or HTML forms.
  4. Download documents in a number of formats including: Newton Paperback, PalmPilot DOC or eReader, PDF, Rocket eBook, or raw TEI/XML.

Finally, enjoy, but remember this is a work in progress. It is an attempt at recreating the existing Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts (http://infomotions.com/alex/).
