Dan Cohen spots fingers:

Just something that I’ve [Dan Cohen] noticed while looking at many nineteenth-century books in Google’s massive digitization project. The following screenshot nicely reminds us that at the root of the word "digitization" is "digit," which is from the Latin word "digitus," meaning finger.

These are nineteenth-century books so I think the scanning could not be done otherwise?
