This project, sponsored by the American Antiquarian Society, created a database of information about illustrations in early volumes of Scientific American (1846-1854). Electronic indices of historical documents usually allow searching only for text rather than illustrations. This database, built on RDF and accessible through a web interface, provides searching for structured, textual descriptions of illustrations. The report discusses ways of extending the project as well as the historical context of Scientific American and the technology of its time.
