About this book: Catalogue in two volumes containing the descriptions of 192 incunabula acquired between 1978 and 1989. Each item is described bibliographically, with attention to such details as bindings and provenances, but there is also marked emphasis on the texts themselves, which are placed within a wider intellectual context, whenever appropriate focusing also on the importance of the author, the content of the book and the particular characteristics of an edition. Each incunable item has at least one full-page reproduction.

The preface to this catalogue by Joost R. Ritman is published on this website.
