Guided tour through the Scientific City Library Mainz

© CC

As a historical heritage, the Scientific City Library Mainz preserves a stock of approx. 77,000 prints from the 16th to 18th centuries. It owes most of its historical prints to the libraries of the Mainz branch of the Jesuits dissolved in 1773 and the monastery of the Mainz Charterhouse dissolved in 1781. The guided tour offers the opportunity to reconstruct the composition of the old holdings and their provenances on the basis of originals. A visit to the book tower is also planned.
