Incunabula (Early Printed Works)

The Bavarian State Library holds one of the world's largest collections of printed works from the 15th century. Within the framework of cataloguing projects and prompted by users' requests, digital reproductions of individual pages and complete editions have been produced. The digital copies are searchable in the electronic catalogue of incunabula, called BSB-Ink online. Among the already digitized parts of the collections there are:

  • Graphic-art book illustrations of the 15th century (individual pages with additional search option for image contents)

  • Broadsides (complete collection)

  • Incunabula of special importance, among them the Gutenberg Bible and Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle (reprint Augsburg 1500)
