20,000 rare books on e-rara.ch
At the beginning of the year, the 20,000th title was made accessible via the online platform for digitized rare books from Swiss libraries e-rara.ch (external link). The landmark figure was reached with the Geneva edition of "Destructorium vitiorum" from the year 1500. The early printed book illustrated with numerous woodcuts and owned by the Bibliothèque de Genève is part of the collection "15th century Swiss prints".
One of the five cooperative partners is ETH-Bibliothek, which currently has over 7,000 titles on e-rara.ch. See for yourself and have a look at the latest new titles (external link).
