Thousands of 18th and 19th-century images of New Zealand have been put online for public use.

The British Library has put 1 million public images on to Flickr Commons for anyone to use, remix or repurpose.

They include many New Zealand images not seen before.

The library says images include maps, geological diagrams, beautiful illustrations, satire, illuminated and decorative letters, landscapes and wall paintings.

Librarians involved in the project say they do not know much about each image and hope crowd-sourcing will provide details.
