Its Main page says (August 2009): "There are nearly 30,000 free books in the Project Gutenberg Online Book Catalog. A grand total of over 100,000 titles are available at Project Gutenberg Partners, Affiliates and Resources.
Project Gutenberg, named after Johannes Gutenberg, is an attempt to make the texts of all books whose copyright has expired available on-line.

The catalogue contains mostly works of literature, and historically significant books.
