Abstract: Digitalised publications in the field of African Studies that are not avalailable on the bookmarket any more due to limited copies that were originally published. Among them »Barbot's West African Vocabularies« from about 1680 but also J. D. Fage's »A Guide to Original Sources for Precolonial Western Africa Published in European Languages« from 1994. Full-text searching for the electronic-facsimile texts is based on uncorrected OCR (Optical Character Recognition) results. A project of the University of Wisconsin Libraries. [editors ilissAfrica]
