Blockbooks in Bavaria

Dear colleagues,

since the start of this year, a project for the digitization and
cataloguing of all blockbooks in Bavarian collections (currently c.
90 blockbooks from 14 collections) is under way at the Bayerische
Staatsbibliothek in Munich.

Further information is available on the project homepage: the moment, 54 blockbooks from the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek,
Bibliothek Otto Schäfer in Schweinfurt and Kirchen-Kapitelsbibliothek
Schwabach are accessible in full colour digital reproductions with
short descriptions. Full descriptions will be created in the course
of the project.

Best wishes,
Bettina Wagner
