Heidelberg incunabula – digitized

Heidelberg incunabula – digitized

Death and the PopeThe library's incunabula collection, most of it coming from monasteries, comprises approximately 1,800 printed books and fragments dated from between 1454 to 1500. Particularly numerous are the examples printed in the German speaking southwest and south, but examples from the centres of book printing along the Rhine, like Cologne, Mainz and Speyer are represented, too.

The results of our ongoing incunabula catalogue project are integrated in our online catalogue HEIDI and available via the Incunabula catalogue of German libraries (INKA) as well.

By establishing an in-house digitization centre in 2003, the University Library started to gradually digitalise parts of its valuable old stock.
