Open for Research... Notes on the Collections

The Rare Book Department of the Library has acquired an exceptional two-volume set of 110 original leaves from various German incunabula. The fifteenth century pages are described in accompanying booklets by Konrad Haebler, published in Munich by Weiss & Co., Antiquariate, in 1927 and traqslated into English by Andre Barbey. From 1920 until his retirement Dr. Haebler was head of the Kommission fur den Weltkatalog der Wiegendrucke, editors of the partially completed Gesamkatalog der Widgendrucke (Collected Catalog of Early Printing), also in the Rare Book collection.
