The Library of Franeker University

The Library of Franeker University in Context, 1585–1843

From 1585 to 1843, the Dutch town of Franeker housed the University of Franeker. It had its peak in the seventeenth century and attracted students from Protestant countries throughout Europe. A library was founded right from the start, and its collection has been preserved almost entirely. Eleven catalogs were printed in the course of its existence, and as a result, the development of the collection can be examined chronologically.
The Library of Franeker University in Context, 1585–1843 discusses the relationship with education at Franeker University in detail, and makes a comparison with other similar libraries.
