The Fine Print:These images are from sources published before 1923 and therefore in the public domain (more info) or they are from sources that published a reproduction of an originally public domain image (see Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp).I have done my best to make sure the pictures are in the public domain, but if any of the sources are not in the public domain and can be shown to not be in the public domain, I will remove them upon request.  I make no claim or guarantee the images are in the public domain.  So, if you wish to use them commercially, it would be best if you verified the sources yourself.
