Another “favorite” data source for me is Pinnacle Data Corp., but the
files cover a wide range of data only from 1900 and later:
http://www.pinnacledata.com/products.asp

I’m aware of a number of other historical data providers, but they are
very expensive, and so I did not include them here. (I’m sure you can
find many of them by searching Google for providers of historical
data.) I hope this helps you find the data you’re looking for!
