(When attempting to upload this torrent file, available at the Reddit link below, I got "413 Request Entity Too Large" which I assume is due to PHP upload limits as the torrent file is just over 20 MB. If the owners of this site want to add it, feel free.)

Biodiversity Heritage Library drawings

Over 150,000 Botanical Illustrations Enter the Public Domain

The free images, uploaded courtesy of the Biodiversity Heritage Library, include animal sketches, historical diagrams, botanical studies, and scientific research.

...the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), the world’s largest open-access digital archive dedicated to the natural world, is now offering more than 150,000 high-resolution illustrations for copyright-free download.

These public domain images belong to an archive of more than 55 million pages of literature about earth’s species of flora and fauna. They include animal sketches, historical diagrams, botanical studies, and scientific research collected from hundreds of thousands of journals and libraries across the world. Some of the illustrations date back to the 15th century.

It's around 109 to 115 GB, depending on how you count. It's one directory, with subdirectories for each album, and JPGs in each album folder. Nothing is compressed.

This torrent contains 3,339 out of the 3,341 albums.

Per Reddit discussion, this torrent actually has a number of problems with it (overly large torrent file size/amount of files crashing some clients or too slow, files use NTFS reserved characters) and it will soon be replaced with a new torrent containing a single uncompressed ZIP file with proper file names. (This is not my torrent.) I'm sure this corrected torrent will upload fine to LegitTorrents.
