Bern Incunabula Catalog

Among the historical collections of the University Library of Bern are 450 incunabula, printed works of the 15th century. After a phase of several years of detailed indexing, an exhibition is being prepared in the Münstergasse library, which will be on display from February 2022.

In addition to the presentation of selected examples on various topics, the digital incunabula catalog will be presented as a web application in which all titles are searchable according to various criteria and enriched with images in IIIF standard. For this occasion, a number of very rare incunabula will also be fully digitized and placed on e-rara.
