The collection forms part of the so-called library treasures, including around 380 books, in which images and texts were produced in the copperplate engraving method ("Chalc.", Chalcographa). Printed sheet music is not included in this collection group. The collection includes works by Christoph Jamnitzer, Virgil Solis, Jacques Androuet de Cerceau or Hans Vredeman de Vries, reproductions of works by famous painters and also original works. The focus is on historical prints of the 18th century, predominantly in the German or the French language.
