Polonsky Foundation Digitization Project


The Bodleian continues to digitize incunabula and Hebrew manuscripts as part of its collaboration with the Vatican Library, which will put a total of 1.5 million pages online. On 24 February 2015, the libraries celebrated having captured 1 million images for the project. To mark this milestone, the libraries chose two particularly special items from their collections to put online. The Bodleian Library chose Auct. L 3.33, a landmark in printing history produced by Sweynheym and Pannartz, and the Vatican Library chose Stamp. Barb. II. 41, a hugely popular fifteenth-century cookbook.
