Incunabula are books printed before 1501 and for the age and size of the University of Leicester the University Library is particularly rich in this material.

Vulgate Bible Koburger
Latin Vulgate Bible printed by Anton Koburger, 1479

The incunabula are available for consultation in the Kirby & West Special Collections Reading Room and here is a list of our holdings. Members of the Library can place a request via the link to view them.
