Digitised books from August Waldner's private library
The private library belonging to August Waldner (1844-1906) is now available on e-rara.ch. The engineer and ETH Zurich graduate was the founder and publisher of the “Swiss Construction Journal (external link)”, Switzerland’s first specialist journal for the building sector. Approximately 500 volumes from his private library were bequeathed to ETH Zurich, and are now housed in the ETH Library’s Old Books Collection. This bequest will be systematically digitised and added continuously to the digital private library at e-rara.ch (external link). The digital reproductions are freely accessible to users and can also be downloaded as desired.
