  • Die Flugschriften des 17. Jahrhunderts in der Staats und Stadtbibliothek Augsburg
    The 17th century Pamphlet Collection of the State and City Library of Augsburg contains PDF files representing 1,888 rarely-held pamphlets (ca. 78,000 pages of text). The pamphlets reflect a wide variety of topics central to the political and social history of Europe in the 17th century. They are particularly rich in background for the four great military conflicts of the century: the Thrity Years' War, the Swedish/Polish War of 1656-1658, the Turkish War waged again Kaiser Leopold in 1663/1664, and the war against France in 1673/1674.
