Dictionary of National Biography, 1885-1900
|Dictionary of National Biography, 1885-1900 (1885)|
The Dictionary of National Biography (DNB) is a standard work of reference with articles on more than 29,000 notable figures from British history. It was originally published in 63 volumes between 1885 and 1900, by Smith, Elder & Co.
The project is fairly complete. We have transcribed all the DNB articles, but not all are fully proofread. Each article links to scanned images of the original published pages to allow a reader to verify the text.
