General Sites

Good places to look for on-line texts of all sorts (though I've emphasised sites with good philosophy holdings) (in alphabetical order)

Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts
"a collection of public domain documents from American and English literature as well as Western philosophy" maintained by Eric Morgan.

A variety of different resources and services, of which I've found the most useful to be their on-line editions of the Harvard Classics series.

Primarily a literary resource (and their use of "Early Modern" takes in the fifteenth century), but contains a number of philosophical works. Maintained by Matthew Steggle for a journal called Early Modern Literary Studies.
An excellent resource, offering over 700 well-presented on-line texts.
