The National Library of Malta possesses a small but interesting collection of sixty incunabula, among them Ptolemy’s Cosmographia (Rome, 1490) which contains an engraved map of the Mediterranean showing Malta in the centre.
This collection contains nearly 15,000 charters in the public domain held at the Biblioteca de Catalunya. The documents range from the 10th until the 16th centuries, and are mainly in Latin with a focus on Spanish locations and individuals.
Since the foundation of various libraries close to the university in the 14th and 15th centuries, the Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg has housed many important collections. The datasets that have been delivered to Europeana hold over 25,000 records including treasures such as manuscripts, manuscript fragments, charters, and early modern and modern printed books and magazines.
The Carolingian Manuscripts owned by the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) form one of the richest collections in the world. The almost 479 manuscripts from the 8th-10th centuries were made in many different centers throughout the realm.
