Includes records for European printing of the hand-press period (c. 1455-1830) from the Consortium of European Research Libraries, whose 51 members represent national and university libraries in 25 countries. Indexing by author, title, imprint, publication year, language, country of publication and location is extensive. Some of the database's component files offer copy-specific information, including donor, previous owner, and more. All of this makes this database especially valuable for research in intellectual history, social history, and transmission of thought—as well as in the history of printing and the history of the book.
