Language: French.

Description: The digital library of the National Library of France contains a number of rare and valuable items pertaining to China. Searching for auteur (author) "Kircher" or "Trigault" will bring up illustrations from their "China monumentis qua sacris qua profanis ..." and "De Christiana expeditione apud Sinas ..." respectively, and searching for sujet (subject) "chine" will lead to books by Du Halde, Le Comte and many others. Books come as PDF files, while illustrative works ("documents iconographiques") are presented as JPEGs. Unfortunately these illustrations can't be resized and are too small to be decipherable. 

Resource suggested via Rudolf Wagner (Heidelberg University, Heidelberg, Germany) by Nicolas Standaert (Catholic University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium).
