Can you point me to any online thesaurus that contains obsolete, archaic, out-of-use synonyms for contemporary words?

Google search is horribly unhelpful, yielding hundreds common thesaurus and dictionary entries for the word archaic, usually in dictionaries that have been pruned of obsolete words.

    Single-word requests on EL&U should yield the kind of results you're looking for, too. :) – JeffSahol Nov 8 '13 at 18:18
  • @Edwin: Available on Archive.org for download from Project Gutenberg. Very nice, thanks; Still, not a thesaurus :) – SF. Nov 8 '13 at 19:22
