By no means as comprehensive a collection of primary sources as promised - even with regard to Northern America. The period of 1500-1700 strikingly underrepresented (why has 1500 been chosen as the departure date for this resource?) - except in terms of historiographical and cultural 'reception' during the late 18C and 19C, which is useful. Still a useful resource (not least for 3rd Year dissertations and PGT/PGR), this is one for the Northern Americanists with emphases in the 18C to 19C to decide upon.
