Engravings of Dioscorides collection

Engravings of Dioscorides collection. The Dioscorides Digital Library Catalogue gathers more than 3,100 full text books, as well as an engravings database, indexed according to the subject of the illustrations: 50,000 engravings have been made available online.

The UCM Library created the Dioscorides Digital Library with the aim to digitise and provide access to a selection of works from its historical collection of biomedical books. One of the special functions of the retrieval of information is the ability of direct access to the illustration of a book by author, subject or dates. You can access this collection, named "Engravings Database", from the Historical Library web page.
