New Online Resource: Oxford Historical Treaties

Oxford University Press has launched Oxford Historical Treaties. Here's the description:
Oxford Historical Treaties is a comprehensive online resource of nearly 16,000 global treaties concluded between 1648 and 1919 (between the Peace of Westphalia and the establishment of the League of Nations). The source for these treaties is The Consolidated Treaty Series, compiled by the late distinguished scholar Clive Parry of Downing College, Cambridge University, and published by OUP in 231 print volumes. Already established as the primary resource for research on historical treaties, the series will be available online for the first time through OHT. On OHT, individual treaties from The Consolidated Treaty Series will be available as faithful PDF reproductions, and the data set will be searchable and browsable by Treaty Party, by Consolidated Treaty Series (CTS) citation, and by date.
