So print.google.com added a lot of old public domain texts.
But their accuracy ain't there yet.

An example that I found in Seward's Supplement to the Anecdotes of Some Distinguished Persons:

MARY,
QUEEN OF ENGLAND.
THE turn of the English Nation for humourous Political Prints first shewed itself in this reign. An engraving was published representing this Queen extremely thin, with many Spaniards hanging to her and sucking her to the bone.

becomes
MARY,
YEEN OF ENGLAND.
THE turn of the Engli(h Nation for humour . ous Political Prints ... in this reign. An engraving was publifhed reprefenting this Queen extremely thin, with many Spaniards banging to her and fucking her to the bone.


Conclusion: Typography matterf a lot.
