Department of Manuscripts and Early Printed Books
 
The Department of Manuscripts and Early Printed Books preserves the most valuable historical holdings of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, which are continuously complemented by further purchases. The treasures of this department rank the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek among the top libraries of the world. Such a position implies special duties, in respect of both the cataloguing and indexing of the precious sources and of making them accessible to scholars and a general public from all over the world.
