Talking of Plague - I came across a wonderful 2 vol book by Charles Creighton. Vol 1 1891 google.co.uk/books/edition/A… and Vol 2 1894 google.co.uk/books/edition/A… Both available on Google Books - he charts all sorts of epidemics from 664 to the 1890s. Great for context. #AncestryHour

Replying to @Ameen_HGA
It's his article, "The Color Line." One of the best I've ever read.

I just found out that David Walker's Appeal is free on Google books. This is one of my all time favorite books. It is just as relevant today as it was when first published in 1829. books.google.com/books/about…

One of the great pleasures of translating a novel from c. 1900 is working with a Greek-English dictionary from c. 1900 (thank you @googlebooks): for the first time ever, I just got to use the word "virago" (for ἀνδρογυναῖκα). Be well, everyone. #Tinyjoys

Expression "could not care less" appears in 1940, zooms up by 1960, with a millenial peak. For period film #screenwriting Google Books Ngram Viewer is a fun tool.
