This database contains books scanned from the BNC-Firenze, and focuses on four collections of particular interest:
- books published by the Aldine Press
- books with notable marginalia, including works owned and marked by Galileo
- incunabula (works printed before 1501)
- Sacred representations - early dramatic representations of religious scenes seen as foundational works in the history of Italian theater.
For more details, see the publisher's description.
The collection is found on the databases page, and in SearchWorks under the title "Early European Books."
