Adam Matthew is an academic publisher of primary source material.  The digital collections found here are presented in a similar fashion, allowing you to search for items based on keywords but also providing several options for browsing.  Additionally, if you find a subset of the collection that has material relevant to your topic, you can restrict your search to a particular module, theme, or archival collection.  Overall, this is a good option for gaining familiarity with digitized archival material.
