Showcase Exhibition | 31.01.2018 – 12.10.2018

Highlights of the Liberna Collection

Previous Next

The Liberna Study Room remains open to visitors during the conversion measures concerning our upcoming exhibition 'The Fall of the Stars'. However, we kindly ask that you make an appointment with us in advance, as the space can only accommodate a limited number of people. This enables us to continue to offer interested visitors the opportunity to explore this fascinating world of bibliophilic treasures and view exquisite works from the collection, which boasts more than 4,500 items.

Highlights – visual and otherwise – from the Liberna Collection include the so-called Sigmaringen Psalter, bound in blue velvet with gold embroidery, from the early thirteenth century, and the twelve-part Blaeu Atlas, uniformly bound in vellum, from the seventeenth century. A Luther Bible, bound in the seventeenth century, even features a rather unusual exterior: it’s made of black-dyed sharkskin. The works on view are mainly book bindings – from classic full leather bindings with blind stamping or gilding to different types of cloth bindings to rather extraordinary examples, including a chained book and a “kangaroo binding.”

Please contact us for an appointment at least three days prior to the date you would like to visit (visits must take place during our usual opening hours)
