Online Library of Old Manuscripts

I had the chance to cruise through a new and most useful website. It is a virtual exhibition on Ancient World, available at the Exhibition Virtual Space of the Library of the University of Seville. ┬áThe exhibition consists of nine thematic “rooms”, showing 179 printed and manuscripts books, from 15th to 19th centuries. Beside the records, there are links to the digitalized books and commentaries.

The themes include archaeology, epigraphy, numismatics, philosophy, literature and other issues of the Greek and Roman world. Some of the most impressive books from the the sixteenth century are included there. The quality of the manuscripts is unusually high. The database is easy to search and the books are divided in chapters. For those whi are interested in the old manuscripts, this is an invaluable collection.
