à Beughem, Cornelis.
Incunabula typographiae ….
Amsterdam: J. Wolters,
The study of incunabula (books printed during the infancy of printing, from the Latin cunae, “cradle”) has been a cornerstone of bibliographic research for centuries. This work by Cornelis à Beughem (fl. 1678–1710), is recognized as the first bibliography devoted to fifteenth-century printed books. Shown here is a list of works by St. Augustine, including the 1467 City of God printed by Sweynheim and Pannartz in Subiaco; the Grolier Club copy of this work is shown elsewhere in this exhibition.
Gift of Richard E. Priest, 1995.
